Here’s a glimpse of the planter to the right of our approach 2-3-2005, and the view out of my office window. I strategically placed
the fountain close to this window. “There’s a method to my madness.” When I’m in my office, I hear the wonderful soothing sounds
of water. The iron arch on the right isn’t hanging there any longer. I moved it to a much more pleasing location. . .
Fast forward five years, the foliage has filled in beautifully the shutters and planter shelf are repainted a smashing dark-espresso color. Dramatic, eh?
I have a lot of new friends that like to hang around my office since I’ve done all this sprucing . . .
Look closely at the very top of the fountain on the finial. Do you see Him??? . . . I love the way he tilts his head, I think he likes the espresso color we painted the shutters!!! lol
Sometimes there are two or three at once drinking and bathing!
These adorable little humming birds make my heart go pitter patter!!!
FYI, The shrub on the right is night blooming Jasmine, it’s soooo fragrant and sweet-smelling!
Just to the right of the fountain planter area is this gate to enter our itsy courtyard. We plan to replace it with a more Spanish looking scroll design soon. Notice how I moved the iron arch just inside the arch entrance to repeat the same pattern.
