Another glimpse of the early spring patio

I snapped the next set of pictures of my slowly-expanding patio garden this morning before work. The asahi zuru is slowly unfurling its leaves, like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon. Both salvias are sporting brilliant red blooms. The new rosemary shrub is perfuming the patio. And last night’s addition, a Salsa asian jasmine, sits merrily in its store-bought pot, waiting for a new home. You can see the new planter trough which I have painted in hammered bronze.

Meanwhile, I’ve added another round of plants to my shopping cart. I ordered two varieties of lavender, Coconut Ice and White Provence, from Blossom Farm in Ohio.
