Patio Snaps

I swear I think the plants on the patio are growing by the hour. Now I just hope we don't get a hard freeze.

Look what I found at my favorite antique mall today. It's of course supposed to be for beverages. But here it will house potted plants.
And it's red!

I picked up an asparagus fern too.

My cement guy's locks are starting to grow. Soon he will have a whole head full of "hair."

The clematis vine is growing in leaps and bounds. I just love the clematis flower.

If I'm not mistaken, these are the beginnings of one of my hosta plants.

Sedum autumn joy.

Tulip and daisies.

Are plants coming up in your garden yet?

  1. I always love those planter heads. Love the tub! Yes, the plants are coming up everywhere and I have small peaches on the trees, but not too many. I think because our February was the second hottest on record. xoxo Su

  2. It all looks so pretty. This will be the first year I grow Clematis. Sedum is my favorite and so easy.

  3. Hi Brenda! Oh, I know you're thrilled that your little plants are popping up their little heads! Woo hoo! Love that red container. Have a nice weekend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. Yes, those are your hostas coming up. I need to check mine. We had the strangest weather yesterday with a brief snowfall. It got really cold, too and now back to nice weather. Love the new red tub!

  5. No plants coming up. It is snowing in Minneapolis, land of turtlenecks and thick socks.

  6. It is so wonderful to pop into a blog and see something green growing. We have several inches of snow coming tonight---ugh!!! xo Daina

  7. A few things are coming up in our garden. Next week is supposed to be very warm so I imagine much more will be coming up.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. I have some sedum coming up! Otherwise I need to get some new plants this year. Your garden looks great, love the big red tub!


  9. We got alittle bit of everything popping up. I have yet to plant any annuals for fear one last dozie of a cold spell. I generally wait till april anyways. happy weekend!

  10. LOL no they are not! :) I have snow :)

    So I'll enjoy YOURS for the next two months or so

  12. It's very warm here and my Azaleas and Camelias are both blooming. I started a little garden on one side of my potting shed. I will be extending it this weekend. I like your Asparagus Fern. There is some planted in the ground in my yard and it does just fine all year round. Of course, it's a bit warmer here than in Tulsa. Enjoy your weekend!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  13. I an a little envious of all the green on your patio! It's still too cold here in Idaho to have anything pop out of the ground. I do love Clematis, my daughter has one that is always so beautiful. I can't wait to see your little head full of "hair"! Very pretty!

  14. Your garden looks beautiful. Love your new red pot . It made the perfect flower pot.

    we still pretty chilly, so no flowers yet.

  15. It's so nice to see some spring flowers blooming! Ours are a long way off, although the forsythia may be early this year, because we've had a mild winter. The only sign we've had so far are the daffodils just starting to break through the soil.

  16. Brenda,
    Bluebonnets! Telling everyone that I spotted my first bluebonnets in bloom today on I-30 between Arlington and Ft. Worth, TX. Now, I'm planning to go looking for bluebonnets closer to my house. Just like the first robin is the unofficial sign of Spring in the north, blooming bluebonnets are the unofficial start of Spring in Texas.


  17. Things are popping up all over here in central TX too. Your cement guy is a Buddha head, I like it!

  18. I can't wait to see the plants poking through the ground, but unfortunately it will be another 2 1/2 months at the very least before it happens up north. Enjoy your gardening!

  19. Good morning Brenda. I featured your blog on Shout Out Saturday today. Enjoy your weekend.

  20. Yep, my plants are starting to come up too! yay!


  21. I love your red bucket and the cement guy too! Your garden is looking a whole lot better than mine.

  22. I'm loving that red tub! I always have some asparagus ferns planted in some of my pots, too, but I don't think they have anything out for sale yet. It's a little too early, but it won't be long! Can't. Wait.

  23. Love your new plant holder - gorgeous! That looks like creeping jenny coming up as 'hair' - I seriously can't believe how much farther along your garden is - winter is clearly over in your neck of the woods!! Not here - it's cold today and there's some snow coming this afternoon.

  24. Nothing yet as we are still buried in snow but it's wonderful to see spring starting somewhere. That tells all the northerners that spring will eventually make its way up here!

    I love clematis vines as well, along with my lavender, hostas, hydrangeas,...I love anything that is green and comes out of the ground.

    I find plants and gardens to be such relaxing places to spend time. So lovely to sit down on a comfortable lawn chair and to watch and listen to the birds. Come Spring, come!

  25. I think Spring has found your house! Yes, I'm starting to see plants push through the ground outside and getting ready to flower this Spring. It's a wonderful sight!

  26. Thanks for sharing green. Wyoming is still a dirty white. March, April and are the months when I miss east Texas.

  27. My herbs are in a galvanized tub/drink cooler from Dollar General. In Fl...things always growing...but time to refresh my window boxes .

  28. Love this time of the year when everything starts growing again. I bet the tulips and daisies are going to be gorgeous. I am right now hosting a small giveaway on my blog. I would love if you stop by and enter for a chance to win a few Spring items. xxx Maria

  29. Spring is so early thins year, isn't it? I have tulips popping up that we don't usually see until April.

    Good luck with you kitchen, Brenda. I can't imagine redoing something 3 times in a couple of years. I wish you could bottle your energy ;)


  30. I'm not sure..I will have to take a look tomorrow...we have a warm week ahead of us high 60's - low 70' I'm pretty sure something will start popping up....The red tub is perfect for your garden Brenda...also I have been wanting one of those Buddha head planters...

  31. Oh that red bucket....I'm sorry, but I lost all focus after that!! ;)
