Our Patio and Courtyard

Hi to all my friends, it's a cold morning here in So. CA today. Went to Trader Joe this morning and they had the air conditioner on, wow! was it ever cold in there. I even sneezed a few times.
Let's go out the door into our patio, I took these pictures the other day to show Rick since he can no longer go out there, which makes us both very sad. I miss sitting out there with him and enjoying our Sunday breakfast. however, we are still together having our breakfast inside in our entrance hall and that is what counts.
I saw somewhere that having a mirror in your garden is the reflection of your soul, so I immediately put a mirror in the garden.

I added purple to the patio this spring since I love the color so much.

This is the courtyard area, I enjoy my tea out here sometimes.

One entrance to patio.

I did the decal work on this tea set and fired them in my kiln, a very enjoyable hobby.

Here is Mr. Lion, that is what we call him.

This fern never stops growing.

My cat Jersey Girl, she follows me everywhere just like a dog. Loves being out here with me and she likes drinking from the hose.

Just a pretty yellow rose.

We are having the large fountain cleaned, therefore, no water right now. Many birds enjoy bathing here.

Hope you enjoyed this area of our home. Maybe someday we can share a cup of tea together here.
"To open our heart and mind to trust God's Word is to slam shut the doors of fear"
Have a great week everyone.
When Rick took the pics of the entrance hall.I told him not to show the floor cause I was working on it, now it's finished, so here it is.


  1. Hi Lu, it's been cold and wet here in Oregon too. Your pictures are so pretty and what a special place to go to enjoy the day. I am sorry your hubby cannot enjoy it with you. I hope you still enjoy it yourself every once in awhile.

  2. Lu,
    I am in love with your patio. There's so much to say about it. First of all...PURPLE, my favorite color! I never thought of having purple in a garden but it makes sense as it is such a beautiful color. That is interesting about the mirror and the reflection of your soul. This mirror is so pretty. The tea set is lovely, and I can just see you sitting out there with a cup of tea enjoying life. So sorry to hear husband can't come out with you any more. Why is that, dear?

    Your patio is so charming and full of nature's beauty, Lu, and the yellow roses makes it more special. Jersey Girl looks like she is enjoying herself very much haha.


  3. Hello Lu, how are you, sorry for being late lately.
    happy to visit you again.
    so nice courtyard area, love your white chairs.
    wishing you a great week
