Patios and Tropicals…..
……….I love the feel!
I love our patio! It’s almost a little getaway for me. Last year my husband bought me a wonderful set of patio furniture for Mother’s day and there’s nothing I like more than sitting out on a cool or warm evening visiting with family and friends. That’s what we did last night and it was wonderful!
One of the things I look forward to is decorating our patio with plants. Especially those tropical potted palms. Put a couple of those out there and…wow!….I can picture myself on a beach. (I have a great imagination!) These potted palms are so inexpensive and are often sold in Costco and Sam’s. I have only paid about $15.00 for them. They add such a fun and almost whimsical look to our outdoor space. Now, I don’t live in a tropical climate, in fact I live in a semi-desert climate with harsh winters, so I know when I buy these little beauties they will not last. But, I don’t care. I figure it’s no different buying those as an annual than a flat of petunias. And we enjoy them so much.
Don’t be afraid to try other tropicals, too. They are such a fun way to really add some dreamy ambiance to your summertime retreat. Here are some gorgeous suggestions…….
