* Dressing up the driveway

I just decided to dress up the driveway.  Not possible to finish the large jardin at the back, so I need some beauty around me off the little covered terrace.  These are the 'before' photographs.  It will take me a little while to get everything together as I need holes drilled in the walls, some more plant pots, blah blah blah.  The covered terrace is sort of where I want it - not much more to do -- the driveway ... well, I need to play out there and make a little jungle.  It's coming.  When I'm finished, I'll post again.

Nice to see you here today.  Thanks for stopping by.  xoxo Donna

  1. I love everything about those spaces. Such beautiful colors and lights and potted plants. I think I'll stop by tonight (late) and just sit and enjoy. I feel quite a home in those surroundings.

  2. It looks so beautiful Donna, peaceful, homely and good! Hugs, Valerie

  3. This looks like such a nice place to relax and enjoy the outdoors..... Love it.

  4. I love the look of your little piece of heaven, Donna! The blues are gorgeous!

  5. How inviting! Just lovely and peaceful. I was just writing a post about home being sanctuary and the prayer flags around that theme. And here I find myself in your lovely sanctuary. Thanks for inviting us in!

  6. This is "before"?? It all looks so lovely and inviting!!
