Patio life and summery goodness

I hope all the pops out there are enjoying an easy day sitting on the patio or otherwise enjoying some time in the garden. It’s Father’s Day, and you deserve it!

I spotted this relaxing patio and spikylicious steel planter at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, where their back patio overlooks Lady Bird Lake.

Burgundy, pink, olive green, and silvery blue — yum!

I spent a little time on my own patio yesterday, where I admired ‘Helvola’ waterlilies glowing atop round green leaves in the stock-tank pond, having their own little pool party. Good idea now that summer’s heat is upon us.
