French jardin

I can't seem to get jardin off my mind lately. With spring just around the coin, I suppose it's a natural thought.

We added on to an existing back porche last summer and I am excited to begin fluffing it with Français.

Once again during my cuppa tea time I've been wondering around Pinterest searching for idees.
I'm envisioning ferns and roses and flowering blooms filling the space and maybe white wicker since I already have a couple of nice pieces.

I like this idee. Don't you? Love the allysum in the pots. One of my favorite little plants. The old chippy dresser is a parfait resting spot for the blooming plants. How clever to include tattered mirrors.

Ah yes, I'm yearning for fresh clean spring with an orchestra of  robins singing their sweet lullaby.
Just as I do about this time every season. Seasons calling me I believe...

Calling, appeler...
Ayez un beau jour

  2. Jill - you read my thoughts today! My soul is sooo longing for springtime and being able to fluff my porches with ferns and candlesticks and urns overflowing with flowers. I love the idea of putting a chippy white cabinet on the porch. :)
