Nine months of the year, our living space grows by several hundred square feet. We have a huge back patio and almost every room in our house has a door to the outside. This time of year they are rarely closed and life seems to just move outdoors. We eat dinner on the patio, play in the grass, pick lettuce to eat and even watch whatever game is on (I learned long ago that in March, there will be either basketball or baseball on our TV. Trying to change it is futile. So I joined) thanks to PW’s handy work converting an old armoire into an outdoor TV home. It was too pretty not to snap a few pictures this weekend.
In about a week, I’m going to have a whole bush full of these little beauties!
My new kumquat tree
I love the way lavender smells – this one under the kumquot looks distinctly Tuscan
The ocotillo loved all the rain. It’s finally getting it’s leaves back and it will have blooms in a few weeks
The prettiest thing in the yard…he was mid sentence when I snapped this one
Lettuce and herbs
Sprinkler time already!?
