The sun is coming up and streaming into the den.
As I look through the curtains I see hints of fall...
We had a storm last night with high winds, so the first fall leaves have been shaken from the trees and sprinkled across the deck.
Last summer Mr. Heart surprised me with this garden cat, wasn't that sweet!
While trimming hedges I found a fallen birds nest so I placed it in this little basket.
This summer we chose Lantana for our deck planters. In shades of pink, purple and orange, they are holding up beautifully in the hot afternoon sun.
I have always loved rabbit foot ferns. This one is tiny now and I have high hopes that it will grow, grow, grow!
These two beauties are Shamrocks with such dainty blooms. The green has white blooms and the purple blooms are pink.
Mr. Heart and I enjoy having our morning coffee on the screened porch and it is so much fun watching the hummingbirds enjoying this orange Lantana.
Hosta's do really well as potted plants. This hosta and variegated ivy have been in this pot for several years now. The hosta blooms are beautiful and is a nice greeting for friends coming to our back door.
This planter is in the center courtyard and is full of Geraniums and Lantana.
Several years ago I planted Impatiens in a few pots by the screened porch steps and every year since we've had volunteers come up. Sometimes the volunteers are bright red and sometimes pink, it's always a surprise!
I love hearing from you...you always say the kindest things!
