Welcome to our spring patio. I’m so glad you stopped by today for a little tour. This area of our house is definitely where we spend most of our time during the spring and fall. It’s full of color ( which I love) and is a great space for relaxing and entertaining.
On either side of the fireplace we started growing fig ivy. Our winter was absolutely horrible this year and the fig ivy definitely took a toll, but our early spring (70’s and 80’s during the day) is definitely helping it right along. We also planted a Summer White Clematis on our fleur-de-lis trellis-very Louisiana.
Beyond the original flagstone patio is a pea gravel patio with a flagstone path. The bed to the right is where I plant all of my herbs. I also have tons of day lilies and cut flowers such as dahlias, peonies, and calla lilies. It’s a lot of work, but I really love it.
(Can you find Bella?? She had to make an appearance. She was following me while I was taking pictures.)
Here is my all-time favorite tree- a Traveller Weeping Redbud. Throughout this bed there is also Bloodgood, and Shishigashira “Lion’s Head” Japanese maples, ferns, daylilies, a peonie tree (hopefully it’s going to live). The back fence has a Katrina rose.
The back flowerbed has a great view of the entire patio. We added these string lights last year and love them.
(JuJu didn’t want to be left out.)
Thanks again for stopping by and touring our patio. How is your garden growing right now? I would love to know.
