~before~ our house has lovely archways
The best thing about it is that it is a work in progress and you can add to it. As you see, I have plenty of archways to adorn!
At the beginning of each summer I love to try a small kitchen garden with a few veggies and some herbs. Usually I am unsuccessful and I hope it is because I have done them in pots. This year I hope to have found a good spot in the ground. So I planted rosemary, basil, parsley and cherry tomatoes. But I needed some way to keep Jupiter out of it, since I stole his favorite digging spot.
A dish border was in order!
Once again you can just begin and add to it. If you do not have tons of dishes hanging around, Homegoods and Marshall's is a great source...And keep your chipped ones too! You can either use a specific color scheme or just mix any different colors and patterns, which is what I chose to do.
This is the view from my kitchen nook.
