Summer Patio Tour

Hello everyone, 
Well, it's a Hot Summer day to be outside. Our patio is
ready to entertain company, but everybody is in the house.
Last week I bought a pot of nine succulents and a coleus.
The tea cups hold the plump green leaf plants and the colorful coleus found a spot sitting next to the angels in the fern grotto. 
Last summer I found a twin quilted bedspread to cover my OLD swing.
I collect pillows and last year I found a picture with embroidered flowers in a vase, I brought it home and made a patio pillow. I have my favorite pillows on
my Pinterest board. 
We have a swamp cooler, BIG television, and comfy chairs to have afternoon tea.
The French doors go into the master bedroom. Sometimes in the Spring and Fall
I will come outside and lay on the lounge and enjoy a good book or a nap.
I put the tea cups in a galvanized tray I found at Wal-Mart. 
The plants only need watering about once a week. 
I think my choice for the table centerpiece is perfect.
Sometimes I find the neighbor's cat resting on my lounge.
He knows a good thing. I even have some catnip growing
in the garden, he can rub against as he is hunting.

I have a plan to put candles all over the patio and take photos at night.
We have small solar lights placed in plants around the patio and lights hanging from the front of the patio and across our kitchen. At night it looks like far off city lights shining at night. So beautiful to see.
I hope you enjoyed my patio tour.
I hope I have given you some inspiration 
for decorating your outdoor space.
Please pin this mosaic.
