THE WORKING FOUNTAIN WITH A VISITOR
THIS IS THE VIGNETTE AMY AND I CREATED THIS MORNING
The green dough bowl is from France. It is over 100 years old
and I use it indoors to toss large buffet salads or a seafood pasta.
The mustard colored confit pots are usually inside as well and I
use them for fresh floral all year long. These containers will
be filled with herbs, lavender and rosemary.
After Amy had gone, I walked my garden and found
my Texas Bluebells enjoying the warmth of the sun.
This is the best they have looked since planting them
4 years ago.........and this year they have shown up in other
places in my garden as well.
This is a close up of my Helabores. This was one of the first Spring flowers
to show its face to the world. I clipped it all the way down in March
and it is lush this year as a result. This plant grows with its blossoms
facing downward............I lifted one up so you could see the beautiful
color that lies inside.
Purple Spring Violets. . . . . can't get enough of these!
Unfurling hostas reaching for the sun today
These would be know as the BIG DADDY Hosta. They will have leaves
reaching 10-12" in diameter and will be at least 3 ft. high.
My tablescape is progressing. I have decided to add a green
plate to the pink and white mix. My sideboard will have an
arrangement of white roses/champagne roses, succulants of bright
greens, white hydrangeas and bright green berries. The pot it will be
done in was purchased a week ago at http://savvycityfarmer.blogspot.com/
You will recognize it when it is posted.
More to come as the house gets dressed for the house walk. . .
