A blissful landscape…

funny. when we purchased the new french abode we were incredibly excited about the prospect of a large yard. a few months in we came to the realization we do not like yard work, do not want to use up a ridiculous amount of valuable water in order to to keep the traditional grass green and did i mention we do not like yard work?

the solution? lots of rock, cement, potted plants, cactuses and other drought resistant plantings. after researching the topic a bit and gathering inspiring photographs, i can now safely say we are looking forward to the prospect of a beautiful, low maintenance landscape.

images such of these are the inspiration for our upcoming project…wish us luck…

summer collage

i’ll admit it. i have been a bit lax in my posting within the last couple of weeks…i have a perfectly wonderful reason for this: summer. summer is my favorite. i have been soaking up as much as possible and often times the days simply get away from me.

which is why i am thrilled to share my latest project with you all…a little collaboration i have been working on with with kaufmann mercantile. you may have noticed my intro on pinterest; a collaborative board entitled mrs. french and kaufmann mercantile present the blissful outdoors. all the best things about the best season…i could go on and on…
