Six word Saturday

The ephemeral nature of my garden

It’s not a garden, but a simple patio to play and entertain in, and it gives me lots of joy. Many thanks to Amy for prompting me to share it, and to long suffering Debbie for letting Six Words flourish. And a happy weekend to you all!



    1. I’m sitting in the shade with the more delicate plants right now. Unseasonably hot this weekend. Play time later πŸ€£πŸ’• Many thanks for your company!

  1. That yellow hibiscus is a stunner! I wish we could grow them here – although then maybe they wouldn’t have the happy association with holidays, as bougainvillea also has for me πŸ™‚ The shells are a lovely idea too!

    1. When we didn’t live here I couldn’t water plants, Sarah, so I had shells and a few pots to take the bareness off, then I couldn’t bear to part with them. πŸ€£πŸ’• And I can’t resist bringing more from the beach now and then.
      I used to love clematis in the UK but they struggle here. The hibiscus is in the corner hyperventilating right now, in the shade. πŸ€£πŸ’•

    1. That’s because you’re a gardener, Tish. I’m a dilly dabbler who only likes perfect plants. πŸ€£πŸ’• We do have a ‘naughty’ corner for the less beautiful ones and I whisper sweet nothings to them, when I remember πŸ€”πŸ’•

  2. A beautiful and colorful collage, Jo. I’m putting the pieces of this puzzle together in my mind and see a fantastic, attractive, and perfectly-sized patio. I imagine friends and sunshine and a wonderful time. Happy weekend!

    1. It’s just a little space, Frank, but then I have lots of that at the beach. πŸ€—πŸ–οΈπŸ’• Did you see my Positano post the other day? Will come and visit your Night later today.

  3. Dear Jo,
    beautiful pictures. We are always amazed how heathy your plants look like. No spots on the leaves, everything perfect.
    Well, describe your life in six words – that’s quite stupid, isn’t it?
    Wishig you a wonderful weekend

    1. Ah, but I only photograph the beautiful ones, Klaus πŸ€£πŸ’• And I came back from a walk on the beach this morning and moved the the hibiscus and hydrangea into shade because they were wilting in the heat. Me too! πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’• Happy days you 4!

      1. Ok. Lost my Totti yesterday. Empty now. Milo is looking for him. It is so hard to loose a great friend after 13 years. Trying to work in my garden.

      2. Oh sweetheart! That’s so hard! I knew you weren’t happy but didn’t know the cause. At least he’s not suffering, but you are right now. Sending hugs πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•

  4. Such a pretty patio garden you have Jo – so charming πŸ™‚ Hope all is going well with you – am back after the recent hiatus and popping by to say hello. I will have to catch up on posts in depth tomorrow or the day after as need to Skype my dad soon and then off out for the evening. I love my courtyard garden with the potted colour as I find the plants ans flowers grow well! Enjoy your day and chat again soon xx πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. No worries, hon! Just commented over at yours πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ We have to keep revolving the pots to keep the plants happy as it gets hotter.
