I read something recently about keeping your front walk clean and tidy. Making sure nothing were to graze an ankle or catch on a passerby. Flowers that don't shed messy spent petals and plants arranged for year-long admiration.
The words made me pause and crinkle my forehead. Raise an eyebrow as well. Perhaps ask myself a question, "Am I doing it wrong?" But then quickly catch myself and laugh.
This is a bit of our front porch. You'll note we have a bouncer.
Yes we have formal pots on both columns on either side of our 100-year old house. This is one of the pots....
There's another pot on the other column. Hidden here behind the giant bronze fennel. There is! I swear!
And I should warn you. We leave our shoes on the front steps. So watch out for them, will you?
Oh silly gardening rules. Do you believe in them? Do you follow them? Do you raise an eyebrow and laugh at them while pointing?
