I got the need. The need for green.

Springtime gives me what i like to call the "itching for the greens." It's like the running of the bulls, but with a lot less goring. I get in a "what can i make green" or "where can i add green" or "man, i want more plants but my cats will eat them" mindset. I need green!


Enter free sample of paint called Herb Cornucopia.  Springy green goodness?  Oh yes. You down with OPPP? Other people's painted pots? It was time to paint some of my own.


Oh heck yeah. 




Loving this punched up view of the garage!

So why the green love?  Just look at how well these front flower beds are growing.



Not bad for someone who has no idea what they're doing, eh?

And inside, the best green space, and the best place to observe nature but be removed from it (oh yes)

Le sunroom.


Le sigh.

Anybody else get the itching for the greens?  Not to be confused with poison ivy, or anything...

Totally crushing on your sunroom! Love the green on the pots! Fantastic! After spending 4 years in Texas and moving to the east coast... we're definitely feeling the need for GREEN. It's awesome to look out and not see gray, gray and more gray (oh wait, brown too!). Even my 4 yr old said... "Man, it's nice to see green again! Hello trees, you're leaves look great!"... ha ha... soooo my kid!

Your pretty pots have me green with envy-couldn't resist. I need to do some of my own pot painting. Thanks for the inspirations! Have a great week.

I really love painted terra cotta pots especially when the paint starts to wear off. Yours looks so nice and your gardens too. Don't you just love fresh Spring green? :) Love the kitty in the window!

Rachelle said...
