Virtual Garden Tour: The Hangout in Back

Look how I just left you hanging and didn't even end the Virtual Garden Tour. What can I say? I got distracted: beautiful weather, time to play outside in the beautiful sunshine. We have to take it when we get it. But I'm back now to wrap up this Virtual Garden Tour and give you a peek into our private hangout in back.

You can see a bit of it above. As you enter the back from the Side of Calm, this area is benefiting from a newly shaped lawn. This is what's left of the grass, and it's easy to water and care for now.
AdRi can sit here in this new little sitting area in the shade and take in her grass:

Looking back at the far corner:

You may have wondered about that robot in the corner. It has a heart. And hops growing up its leg.

And a solar light on its head.

Looking back at the house, yes, there is a house in this garden.

If you're looking for me this summer, you'll likely find me here:
i love my zero gravity chair
back patio / my summer office
Can you find Wink?
The back patio
The Wall of Scent has been ablaze with jasmine and roses, and hummingbirds.

Lots of pots on the back patio...

colors make me happy
And more places to hang out. Thus, The Hangout.

And that concludes the Virtual Garden Tour. You'll notice I have not included the weeds, bare patches, piles of pots nor uncoiled hoses. But know, they're all there, just beyond the photographer's frame. :) Happy gardening!

Well, LeAnn, it was worth the wait. Just beautiful. Ooh, the roses, the Wall of Scent, the pretty checkerboard patio...the red door, so much eye candy. Thank you for opening your garden to your readers. It was total eye candy.

You have an object of envy in your backyard, LeLo. Your garden is wonderful. Just looking at those pictures soothes my soul.
