This photo pretty much sums up my mood from yesterday to today. We are having a long hot dry summer which is unusual for our area. This morning I woke up to the sound and smell of rain! Pouring rain! And....suddenly..... everything outside looked brighter and cleaner. Who knew a little rain in Washington would feel so good?
About the planter.....For many years the metal frame lived inside our home. It had glass shelves and was mostly a collector of dust. It got "out cycled" about 8 years ago after we expanded our patio. The photo on the left shows what it looked like at the beginning of summer.
It needed a bit of refreshing so I took the old baskets off and gave the metal frame a new coat of black paint. Then, I searched through my endless supply of baskets (how do they multiply so fast) and found a few that fit on the shelves.
