Another little outdoor area is complete! Our vintage chicken crate we rescued from a barn in Pennsylvania at least twenty years ago has traveled with us from coast to coast. It is part of the family now.
The zinc planters are aged, too. The paint is peeling and the little one on the bottom has too much rust. Still I love them. Since we move so often, it is our furnishings that keep a sense of continuity from home to home.
The earthquakes of yesterday went unnoticed, but the wind off the bay is ferocious today. It seems like as soon as I swept something up, it was back in the picture.
These pots are done. Dead plants from last year have been removed and replaced with double impatiens. The succulents were pruned and some small ones placed around to fill empty spaces. The round pot on the right is a vintage McCoy. The other yellow one is vintage California pottery.
By May, the plants will fill the spaces and be in full bloom.
