This Year's Courtyard Decor - So Far..

Not  much different than what I did the last couple of years, but it works....
The begonias in the pots on the right have some growing to do, but after a dose of fertilizer that should be soon.
Large pot on the bottom right is a geranium that is trying to come back from last year after sitting out all Winter.  Normally mine don't last thru the Winter months, so hoping this one  will flourish and bloom.  Bottom left a pot of hens and chicks that I had planned to plant in a concrete planter, but found that it no longer drains.  Apparently the holes are stopped up and it is not an easy project emptying it out and redoing as it is so heavy. I have a strawberry pot to put them in, but for some reason the last couple of times I have planted them, they have fizzled out pretty quick, thus reason for wanting to try the planter.   Had good luck with them where I used to live, but not where I am now.
I should retake  a pic of the azaleas, as they have bloomed a lot more.
There are begonias in the pots, but also need a boost of fertilizer to give them a kick start. There is that blue spot again - Wished I knew what causes it and how to stop it happening.
 
Just sharing my teeny, tiny, microscopic speck on earth.

What a charming courtyard. I love the ferns and all the flowers you have. Is it at the entrance to your home? What a welcoming spot that would be.

The courtyard looks so inviting. I think the blue spots is lens flare from the sun on the camera lens. Take care and have a wonderful week:)

I'm glad to see your out in your garden :-) I love the brick walls... although, I'd be tempted to grow some ivy up them ;-P I love-love ivy growing on walls!
