Killing two birds with one stone.
This is the corner by our front door.
In the reflection of the glass you can see the steps leading up the cliff to the road.
This little nook contains three blue pots filled with succulents ... at Christmas, a friend gave each of our children a pot, bag of potting mix, and three little plants. The boys potted them up the week after we moved, and they have been placed in pride of place by the entrance.
The stick trellis was made by Son #1 and I for the hot pink climbing rose (now sadly deceased) that used to climb over our little blue shed. Its blooms matched the shed’s hot pink roof perfectly.
It’s sitting here now until we find it a suitable location and a new climbing plant.
The wooden angel is a Flying Dewi purchased from Oxfam years ago. She used to hang in our old kitchen, so was dubbed the Kitchen God. Now she wards off evil spirits out the front.
(Dewi Sri is the Indonesian rice goddess, and is also a guardian angel.)
And here she is close up.
