You might already know that I do NOT have a "green thumb"!!  But I really LOVE junky planters and annuals.  About this time of year my plants trend to look a little sad :(

Are you sick of seeing my HEADBOARD PATIO FENCE yet?
We love hanging out on this little concrete patio.  The milk glass "flowers" just adds another whimsical touch to our "happy place".
