Remember the gorgeous aqua (below) I wanted to paint the house?
The triple columns (replacing an awkward, ugly steel pole) and the reworked lightwell with skylights are beautiful improvements.
As the rains return, I'll be gradually adding the plants that have been patiently waiting in the wings for their turn, many since this past spring.
For now, adding the final touch of 50s perfection to the front garden is a trio of new flamingos. As described by Loree in a recent blog post on danger garden, they're now in honor of Dulcy Mahar, Portland's late, beloved garden columnist and defender of their delightfully tacky whimsey.
