It is a beautiful day in South Texas! The kind of day I wish I could bottle
up and keep forever. I had coffee out on the terrace this morning. It was
so relaxing to listen to the birds and here the fountain in the background.
I added some new cushions to our vintage wrought iron furniture.
I kept the colors in the cool greens to give the illusion of a cool and
serene spot under our hot Texas sun.
The everblooming azaleas are in the background. I thank our previous
home owners for planting them. They were thoughtful to see that something
is flowering or bearing pretty berries in virtually every season.
Notice that Bentley is no where to be found. Normally, he is right
out here with me. However, he had a very busy weekend and is
inside doing some very serious napping. He often naps quite
soundly on Mondays ;-) Not to worry though, he will be rested
and ready in no time.
I have cleaned up the porch and patio three times in the past couple
of days. At the moment it is pollen free, but don't know how long
that will last.
Did you notice my ferns? Love them. As long as they are kept
evenly moist they should thrive through next fall.
I do need to give the wicker a coat of paint. That's another
I put this bowl of succulents on the coffee table in front of the settee.
I love them! Succulents are my new planting passion.
So now that the cushions are on the wrought iron furniture, the
ferns are hung and pollen swept away, we can enjoy it while we
can before the hot humid South Texas summer arrives.
I just checked on Bentley. Still napping and dreaming too :-)
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
