Welcome to The Porch and Patio Party hosted by Barb over at http://gritsglamour.blogspot.com/. Be sure to check out all the Porches and Patios over there. This should be exciting. I love the outdoors when theres a nice breeze blowing and the sun is shining and flowers are blooming.
OK, here we go. We will be redoing our back patio pretty soon. I would love a cover porch with a sitting area and outdoor curtains around it. We may also use concrete instead of wood. We are still deciding about that. But here is what we have for now.
As you can see we have a pretty large area for our patio, but I think the space can be used better, thats why we want to change it and update. This area does not get a lot of sunlight, so its pretty hard to keep a lot of flowers alive here. But our ferns usually do great.
Here are our patio doors. This is where we want to put a cover and sitting area.
This is where we have our outside meals.
I also love to decorate the walls outside, this is beside the patio doors.
We also have a side patio. This is where most of the flowers are, we get more sunlight on this side.
We have tried a couple of times to have a small garden in the back yard with no luck, hence no sunlight back there. So this year we decided to try a garden in a pot. We have tomatoes and banana peppers right now.
See the tomatoes we have coming already. Can't wait for fresh tomatoes.
Here are a few of my flowers blooming right now.
This is what I have for now. Its been raining most of the day, I was afraid I was not going to get my pictures. Things will be fuller as the summer comes. Be sure and go visit Barb and check out more porches and patios. Everyone have a great party. Debbie
