This is one of several places to sit in our yard. We call this area our “secret garden” because when all of the trees and plantings are in full bloom, it’s partially hidden. One side of the pathway that runs through it becomes a bit hidden as well.

We moved into our villa in Florida only a year ago. We love to sit outside and enjoy our plants and our little bubbling fountain. We turn the block wall behind our villa into a “climbing wall” for our bougainvillea. The tree in the corner is a bottle brush tree and get bottle brush shaped blooms on it. It’s all work in progress, but in a couple of more years it will be perfect.

As a birthday surprise we spruced up an area of a friends patio with a small seating arrangement, cross cross patio lights and colorful plants.
