Snug Harbor has its own line of terracotta pots that have me doing my happy dance. They are weathered, covered in green moss, and paired with a beautiful go-green, succulent, or Lemon Cypress topiary. Just Wowza!

Just look at all that chippy, rustic goodness!

    I love the little garden cabinet. I have a cabinet painted in the same shade of green. It was in my home as a child and it has moved with me five times over the last 45 years. I have painted it a different color each time to go with its new location…cream to barn red to Williamsburg blue to the pale green and now it will be a Williamsburg yellow(having taken four years to decide on its new color I am painting it this week) in our house in VA. Both the cabinet and I are hoping this is our last paint job! I visited Vermont and Maine once and loved it so I so enjoy reading your blog.


    1. Thank you so much Cindi! Your cabinet sounds wonderful. I have one too my father made for me and I’m always painting it too😃

  2. Ann, what a fun outing! I love topiaries and anyone of those would be welcome in my home.
    I would love it if you would add this fun post to my Friday with Friends link party.
    happy weekend,

    1. Thank you so much, Rachelle, I will definitely drop by!

    Ah – Kennebunkport was one of my mother’s favorite places to go. Both my sisters have been there (they lived in Connecticut at time so not a huge deal to go there with them, as I am in mid Ohio.) So today being Mother’s Day it was a great day to read and watch this neat post.

    OI love those topiaries! My hubs got me an unusual lavender tall huge topiary for Mother’s Day. I used to have a gorgeous rosemary one but I killed it one very hot summer when I wasn’t feeling well and let things go too long. (boo hoo. still kicking myself.)
    Thanks for the smiles. It snowed just a little northeast of me last night – and the world was covered in the white stuff. So weird.
    Hope you have had a nice weekend.

    1. Thank you kindly for dropping by today Michele. Topiaries can be so hard to keep at times. I’ve killed my fair share too. But I’m trying them out again, as I adore them too. Happy Mother’s Day!
