All of the yard is looking so nice this year, but here is where I spend most of my time. It is shady and cool under the patio all day. The yard itself gets hot sunlight at various times, but overall is mostly shady. The flowers have thrived in pots this year, and even a hosta is about to bloom. Some of this photos I took at noon and the light is much too bright. Others I took just before sunset and things are quite shady. It's hard to get good balanced light in this area. I'll try and get shots of the rest of the yard soon.
