Now that I've pretty much planned out the interior of the house, I've started to turn my creative energies to the exterior. Not that I've actually finished doing everything on the inside. I've just thought it all up. I need a new "planning in the evenings when I'm to tired to actually do anything" project. And this is it. The front entrance to the house. In particular, that pesky little brickway that's not quite a patio, not quite a porch. There's no roof and no place to plant flowers-- which you wouldn't see from the yard anyway, because of the wall.
The only sure thing I've got is that I must have some bougainvillea growing on that wall. That's a given.
Here are the pics. Now, turn loose your creative juices and tell me... what would you do?
Oh, and I should point out that, in Florida annuals are not really an option. We don't have an irrigation system and I'm SO not spending the next ten years of my life watering. I need super easy, drought resistant suggestions. Also, lots of mulch, most likely. And bushes. But no cacti. After our last run-in with a cactus, I spent three days picking splinters out of Judah's hands.
