The Patio

... also has flowers.

That's right! Of course it does. :) To continue the tour of the yard:

The box on the left was just sitting around when we moved to this house. The other two I bought at Rite Aid and Fred Meyer. The Califormia "poppies" popped up on their own. The other plants, however, have stories.

The heliotrope in the upper left smells amazing, by the way. :) The hydrangea, "Bailmer", was on the 50% off rack at Fred Meyer when I bought it, I purposefully waited for it to go on sale and purchased even though it looked close to death; and there it is looking beautiful again! 

The stone-colored box in the lower right has (from left to right): 
  • Nandina "firepower" (I believe)
  • Lemon thyme
  • Yellow primula "Double Mix"
  • Cupressus macrocarpa "Wilma Goldcrest"
  • Erysimum "Canaries" 

The nandina was a rescue. I brought it home from a parking lot. The medians within the parking lot had the  dwarf nandinas, but this one was uprooted, laying on the ground, and not near any hole that it could have been growing in. So, of course, I took the poor thing, which looked like death, and brought it home. :) 

Hanging in front of the kitchen window are these babies:

My first hanging baskets! The right one has three trailing fuchsias: one "Pink Marshmallow", and two "Snowy Summit". The left one includes: 
  • Two santivitalia "Tequila"
  • One Calibrachoa "Cabaret" in yellow
  • Ipomoea "Marguerite"
  • White verbena
