Five Ways to Bring Provence to Your Patio

We can't travel to France right now so I've decided to bring France to me! Several years ago I spent a few wonderful weeks touring France to celebrate my retirement, the highlight of which was a stay in an old farmhouse in Provence. It had a charming patio that welcomed us each time we came through the gate. I would love to be able to come home to that feeling every evening but I have to be realistic. I just don't have that house to work with as a backdrop! So I have come up with five very easy ways to add that charm without the price of an airline ticket!

An Early Bloom...That Lasts One Day

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Walking Iris in BloomI first shared this good news several years ago and now I can't believe that it took so long for this to happen since I can now count on it every year! In fact, they are blooming right now...a month earlier than usual! :-) 

My neighbor Joyce kindly shared with me some babies from one of her mother’s cherished plants with the instructions to let them get pot bound and they would bloom. She didn’t know the plant’s name at the time, but I later found out that it is a Walking Iris.
