We have had a reprieve from winter weather. The last two days were down right balmy, with temperatures in the 60's. Really! We can see the sidewalks again & the river is flowing again. It was heavenly. But apparently it was only a tease. Frigid temps are back today & projected for the week.
In light of this, I thought I would add a few more of my
" in pots" series, in hopes of taking a bit of the chill out of the air.
And to serve as a reminder, that spring really is just around the corner.
This house had so many lovely pots with an amazing assortment of plants & flowers.
But, what could be more chic than this simple pot of ivy elegantly placed before this medieval door with a modern twist.
The colors in this photo are almost garish in comparison.
I especially love the use of this ancient stone trough as a planter. In earlier times it was most probably used to water live stock.
These succulents are lovely in this stone urn.
And, here's one I could not resist. This sleepy cat roused himself, just long enough, to look me over, before going back to his nap in his flowerpot.
Last but not least, a bit of nostalgia, chez moi, with the blue pot to go with the shutters.
