New Garden Color

I spent the afternoon recently repainting my ceramic pots, filling them with an assortment of annual color, and installing 5 knockout roses in a big planter just outside the back door of our living room.  I am not quite finished, but I'm happy with the changes so far.  Take a look:
pot was primed with ceramic paint

over-painted with a mottled amount of "claret wine" spraypaint

pots were filled with a variety of annuals, 
and 5 knockout roses were installed in the big planter.
I decided the planter needs lavender.....

Here is the house sign at the end of our drive,
changed to match the new roof!


  1. Love your new numbers for your house and the detail of using the same tiles! Very cool indeed!

  2. Thank you! I had to "strong-arm" the roofers into changing the house sign for me, as it had the old tile on the top. Still more pots to resurface. It is currently too hot to do much work outside.

  3. What a great idea to top off your house sign with roof tiles, very unique - I've never seen this before!


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
