My Patio

When I arrived home from work the other night, I was met with a wonderful surprise! My significant other had been busy at the local home and garden store.

Originally, I only had the little herb garden but now we have a great little area. I find that we naturally gravitate here, often taking our dinners out side =)






This is my palm tree! There are also little flowery plants at the base to add color. I am not really into plants that aren't edible but the palm tree is kind of fun =)









This is my other non-edible plant. It is a Lamb's Ear and that is exactly what the leaves feel like. I had to leave my last one in Kentucky and this was a beautiful surprise.





Finally, these are my herbs. Oregano was the first to pop up but is still very small. The Cilantro was last to sprout but is growing like crazy. I can't wait to try my hand at salsa!

Looks like some of the pics didn't make it through on the post but it looks like a lovely patio.

This patio looks very relaxing and I feel that you are at peace every time you're there. Creating your own patio does not require a bigger backyard or a rooftop. A small space can be made more spacious and fab when you try to decorate it.

Thanks Gerry! We loved being out on the patio. Our new one is larger and I will try to post pictures soon =)
