I'm gonna say here that James is some kind of genius.
That he is - but this was a bit of teamwork. He prepped and I painted, potted, and placed. Funny thing - there was a fine layer of dust on the table this morning.
I should have showed you when you came by--the fine layer of dust beneath each and every window in our house. This old place is not exactly not hermetically sealed.
Which is probably better for us in the long run.
On Saturday I'll post the same view post winds. Nary a leaf is left on the trees.
