Hey Christina, loved seeing my courtyard in your post! We had early signs of spring last week but today is a bit chilly – ready to plant! You can come visit anytime! Mary Bairstow – Mary Bairstow Designs.

The combine of color, plantings and architecture create such an inviting space! It’s easy to imagine it being enjoyed by one or many.

As I travel through the U.S. I’m amazed at the diverse geography and of course, climate in different areas. While some bask in the glorious sun in one area, others may be buried in snow. While some revel in the activities that are typical of winter and snow, others may complain about the heat… …but for those of us who love the outdoors and outdoor spaces, any season brings us incredible joy.
