Something New for the Patio!

Good morning! We had a very rainy day yesterday and cool temps but they are SLOWLY going up and by the weekend should be nice!  Joe and I decided we needed something new for the patio. We had a portable fireplace out here for 3 years but it wasn't just what we wanted and it also sat unused for most of the time. So we found something that will work much better. It is a combination coffee table and fire pit! We are loving it! Here is what the patio looks like now! All the pots are planted, the cushions are out and the coffee table is put together!
 I changed my colors out here this year; I wanted to use blue and tan with a pop of orange.
 The coffee table blends nicely with the table on the deck as they both have tile on them.
 I found the bird on a branch pillows at Home Depot and love them! The solid blue ones came from Walmart! The blue and white pot and the solid blue pots are planted with annuals.

 I love these ferns and had it inside for awhile.
 The large pots are not blue but I like how the light green blends with the blues.
 These solid blue pots came from Big Lots and I bought 2 sizes. I love that they have birds on them!
 This wicker looking bench is also new and holds ALOT! We originally thought it could be used as a coffee table but it is too big. It holds all our pillows and cushions and bug sprays etc. The plant in the large tan pot is a water hyacinth that we took out of the ground around the pond as it was growing too big! It will bloom in the summer.
 I found this pretty blue birdhouse and the hanging plant is an orange geranium. In the large green pots are spikes, orange geranium, purple petunia and white allysum.
 On the step going down to the patio is my pot that my friend Shirley from Housepitality Designs gave me. I had seen it on her blog and told her if she ever wanted to get rid of it I would buy it. It has special meaning to me as it says, "gather ye Rosebuds". My Mom's nickname was Rosebud, or Buddy. She was so kind to just pack it up and send it to me!
Thanks so much for stopping by. We have a busy week. I will be sharing a lot of what we have been doing, both inside and outside.
