I have cut back all the plants in my pots for the year and pulled the annuals out. With our mild winters I keep my impatiens for years just cutting them back in the winter and feeding them.
The ivy is the only greenery now as the other vine dies off in winter.
This is Lola my six pound baby. This chair is her favorite spot on warm afternoons.
Don't those poor candles look sad all melted. Time to get rid of them. I have some bulbs coming up in a pot on my table though. They are purple Dutch Iris I divided from the front yard. I will be making less trips to the nursery this year as I we are working off a list of maintenance jobs around here.
