Hey everyone, thanks for all the thoughtful comments on the purpose filled home post, I’ve read every one, I really appreciate your fantastic insight! I finally got that patch of sun I was waiting for all weekend long, so I was able to get my hands dirty with some new plantings for the front porch.
I replaced the dying Italian cypress with these pretty blue Potato Bush topiary trees and some ‘Glamorama’ pansies. Out of storage came the outdoor medallion pillows I’ve had for two summer seasons (found at a local garden department). The striped ones are these Esther pillows found on sale at Joss & Main.
