Today

 I worked in the garden yesterday. Today, I had a break. Everything looks clean. 
It's time to relax and enjoy... at least, for a day!





Have a great weekend! Relax!

  2. Soooooooo pretty. I wish I had time to get out there yesterday and do it, but I didn't. I have to do it today. I prefer to do most of my lawn care on Friday so it looks pretty for the weekend. I'm going to be looking for me some palms, I'm not sure where on the patio I'm going to put them yet, but I'm going to try and find a spot. Do you know the epithet of yours? Hope you have a great weekend.

  4. How beautiful photos! You have a lovely garden! I know it takes a lot of work.

    If you want to see a Finnish garden, you can visit my blog. My photos aren't so fine as yours, but maybe you can get some idea, how it looks like...

  8. I think I've said it before, but these photos prompt me to say again, that I dream of a garden like yours. You've created something so beautiful, if it was my garden, well I'd never leave that couch!

    1. Chrisitine, thank you! You make me laugh - who will weed the garden while you are relaxing?

  9. Thank you for the beautiful photographs of your stunning garden! Are you able to leave your potted palms outside in the winter or do you protect them in some way?

    1. outlawgardener, thank you! We leave them outside all the time. They are too heavy to move. Mediterranean palms are hardy, but I think they would be more safe in soil and closer to the house. I brush off snow of them in winter. Also, when it is very cold, I try to wrap some blankets around their trunks.

  10. What a great place to sit down and relax!
    We haven't been able to do so over here;
    it has been raining all summer now;
    the garden is a swamp
    and the garden furniture is always wet.
    Feels like fall vacation really.
    We've even gotten used to it, amazingly.
    We just keep ourselves busy inside the house.
    The garden is... well... not as it should be,
    almost no bloom at all due to the late frost earlier this year
    and the lack of sun now.
    I do enjoy the pictures of your and other gardens in blogland though.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Very special plant you showed in the previous post as well.
    Gorgeous photos you took of it.
    Bye,
    Marian

  11. Tatyana, nice photos of nice home and garden! I love your pruned plant in a pot, I think it's thuja and boxwood?

    1. Thank you Nadezda! It's boxwood.

      Delete
    2. Boxwood doesn't survive here in winters, so some gardeners plant thuja in a pot and prune it. But they need to store it in cool place during the winter. I don't do that, haven't cool storage.

  12. Doesn't it feel good to relax in a space that you have worked so hard to clean and create? It looks like such a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the day!

  13. Haven't been by in a while. Your garden looks beautiful. Worth all that work you must have done. I'd lounge outside as much as I can if I had a garden and the sofa set like yours. I was wondering if you have a roof or extended eaves over the terrace. How do you handle the rug in rain?

  14. Sage utterfly, it does indeed!

    Bom, thanks! They make rugs now which are good for outdoors!

  15. Where is Fine Gardening Magazine? They need to visit your garden and take pictures. Just gorgeous! Love your little Monkey Puzzle Tree and that palm is one of the nicest I've seen.

  16. Everything looks very well tended! Your patio furniture looks very comfy, with wonderful garden views! My own midsummer garden needs a good cleanup and trim of dead flowers and leaves. The heat has taken its toll!

  17. What will you be doing with those vines at the last photo, they seem to be so vigorously looking for things to hold on too! Your garden is so very clean, am so envious.

  18. Aaahhhh ~ it looks beautiful Tatyana. So peaceful, inviting & lush. And very different than our parched gardens. I love all your potted plants. They add the perfect touch to your patio. Hope you did relax ~ whenever I say that I never do!
