I am always struck by the sense of peace and calm conveyed by your posts and photos. Those containers are lovely along the counter. Your patience and persistence in finding the perfect plant are qualities I struggle with every day. Your photo makes me want to pour a cup of coffee, pull up a chair and enjoy the view out the window.


Hi Jennifer! Thanks for your thoughtful comment. I appreciate your positive view of what I usually consider stumbling forward in an effort to find a solution! Hey, I'll put the coffee on, just let me know when you'll be by.... :)


Looks great, I really like the containers for those plants. What direction does your window face?
