Hit and Run Patio

I survived the past five days of theater, concert, funeral, mom, shopping, church and business trip.

I’m a tad bit tired, especially after an earlier, very sweaty yoga class.

All I can muster up this evening is a hit-and-run of the patio gardens that Natasha and I tend.

First up: Black-eyed Susan vines and a lucky turtle.

Clematis and Sun-Patiens

We celebrate the Fourth of July all summer long.

And can’t get enough of pink impatiens, even the out-of-focus ones.

Intermixed with the Impatiens is the perfume of white Lobularia.

Besides smelling “lovely,” it grows like a weed and almost hides the bright pink when looking up from the ground.

I see the neighbor is trying to keep up with the Jones’s. How dare she.

That’s it for today.

More to come on the writing-more-than-two-paragraphs side of things very soon. I promise!

    DOUBLE impatiens, too ! Love that black-eyed susan, M-J ! Basically, your climbers arelooking wonderful – I envy you them.That clematis is stunning ! – somewhat like a passion flower, don’t you think …?

      The climbers can so easily get out of control. We have to keep after them. As for the clematis, we were surprised by how delicate they are…and so pretty!

    Very pretty pictures to start the day. I like that you got some with water drops on them, I think that’s a nice look.

      Thanks Dan! Disclaimer: Any water drops used in the pictures of this post were unplanned and unintentional, but the photographer appreciates your positive comments. 🙂

      Thanks H. They ARE pretty to look at and it’s always nice to sit out on the patio on a weekend morning with a cup of coffee. For the future, in the interest of the Master, perhaps I need to write a post about pink turtles?

      There are so many parts of the state that are absolutely beautiful. Evidently, MTM has forgotten this, saw too much of it while growing up, or he has turned his allegiance to South Carolina 😉
