Late July on the patio, with summer visitors

This afternoon's pix of the resident flowers, sunflower type on left, blanketflowers on right, couple of gift marigolds under there, with a visiting caladium in the background. This is what you see when you open the back gate.  And honesty compels me to admit it's the best bit.

 and a whole bunch of campers, here for the summer from next door.  For some of them it's intensive care, for others just r and r. In among them are my own houseplants. Out of the pic on the left is my ficus, growing away, and I think it will touch the ceiling when it comes back into the house.

 I like having the house emptied a bit for the summer.  I bet my housecleaners do, too.


  1. You definitely have the magic touch when it comes to plants! How I would love one of those ferns, but after several attempts at killing them I took pity on the species and don't buy them any more.

  2. Looking all very lush and lovely.


Thanks so much for commenting. I read all comments with care and much pleasure!
