Courtyard Cam

It is actually just a paved area where we park the cars, but there is a pretty brick wall and a wrought iron gate enclosing everything, and I did inherit the pink hydrangea, the Solomon's Seal and the monkey grass when we moved in.
Sounded like a good excuse for a garden to me.  Here it is in real time, with the impatiens only a couple of weeks old.  I'll update every month or so and you can watch it grow.  By October, the flowers in the big clay pots will measure 4 to 5 feet across, and the iron racks on the brick wall will be spilling over with pink and white.  
The Fountain of the Laughing Happy Boy has been in the family for about ten years.  We tried to give him a grand, snooty name but he wouldn't allow it.  Water spills out of the bowl in his hands and into a little pool at his feet.
Heaven help me if they ever outlaw the color pink.  I'll be in in a fix.
