My Patio Garden

Pin It Now!

Fall is in the air today in Silicon Valley. It's only going to be 69 degrees which is really low for this time of year. The flowers on my patio are blooming like crazy so I thought I would share them with you.

Thank you all so much for the very nice comments yesterday. I have some more good news....I now have two rooms on the front page of HGTV's Rate My Space under "Today's Most Viewed" (my dining room and bedroom) and I probably should thank all of you for clicking that link, I'm sure that had a lot to do with it!

Good Morning Cindy,

What lovely flowers! I don't know about you, but when I woke up and saw it was cloudy I just smiled. It's been so hot and now they are talking about rain tomorrow. Yippie! My flowers are not looking as well as yours so I know they will love it :) Congrats on the second post to make the first page! On another note ~ thank you for the great post you did on the painting techniques. I recently aquired a little bench, very similar to the one you have with the white mirror above it. Well, I just finished painting it white and it came out wonderful thanks to you!

Well congrats again Cindy.

Yay! I love it.
Have a great day,

I didn't get a chance to tell you yesterday - congratulations. It makes you feel like all of your hard work is worth something doesn't it?

Your patio is so pretty! Everything you touch is so pretty ( can you come to my home ) I was wondering if you had any kitchen pictues? I would love to see your kitchen. I thought of you yesterday I saw a blue and yellow recipe box that had teacups and saucers on it and you and your home just POP into my thought. Have a great day

Hi, I am playing catch up with my blog friends and just read about your room being on the HGTV sight. You are not bragging - and I am thrilled for you! Your garden is really beautiful too.

Mary said...

Your dear patio garden looks like a little slice of heaven!

I wish it was 69 here in NJ -- it's about 80 and I'm wilting! :)

Great pictures of your flowers and Patio Garden Cindy, to think here in Australia we're just starting to plant our summer blooms. Congrats on your two rooms making the front page, WOW!

Beautiful flowers, Cindy. I especially love the last picture of the white flower with pink tinged tips. What is that? I'm a "wannabe" gardener but no matter how hard I try, everything ends up dying. I just don't have a green thumb. My husband recently bought me a miniature rose bush that was filled with pretty little pink roses and lots of buds but not a single bud opened and in less than a month it was nothing but a dead, dry brown stick with sharp thorns! Sooo sad! :(

Terri and Bob said...

Neat flowers. I can tell they are loving your weather. i am going to go check out your bedroom now, too. How did they get your photos?

Such pretty flowers. Wish mine would look that good.

Pretty Flowers! Thank you Cindy for leading me to HGTV's Rate My Space! After I viewed your room (and commented on it :-) ), I signed up and added my living room. I am currently the "most viewed room" and "top rated room" for Living Rooms! The number I am listed under is: 8520861

Thanks for letting me know about that site!

Congrats, Cindy on your HGTV pages. I'll have to go & take a look. It gets pretty competitive over there, so I don't put anything up there. Glad you are getting positive comments & enjoying it.

Congratulations again and your flowers are just as beautiful as your rooms.

Your flowers are lovely. I've been wondering if you decorate for fall but not even sure you have fall where you live. Thanks for sharing your pretty patio garden!

Even your garden is perfect!! I love the cooler weather myself. Fall is my favorite time of year here in Michigan.

Congrats on being featured with two rooms on HGTV's Rate My Space! Your lovely rooms should be featured. again and again.

I'm so happy to hear that your bedroom made it to the top. It's one of the most beautiful bedrooms I've ever seen.

I'm from the high desert and it's cold here in the morning and warm in the PM. Kinda hard to know how to dress. Looks like shorts weather is over.

Gayla said...

Oh, Cindy... your patio is so lovely. I think fall is gorgeous and wonderful and can't wait, but if I had flowers like that, I might feel differently. Maybe next year I won't be such a dud... (That should be my theme song, I'm afraid). Take care. I think your space should be rated the best on HGTV any time, any day. It's phenomenal.
