and the living is easy!!
We’ve been enjoying quite lovely, and very warm weather here in Scituate. Perfect weather for summer blooms!
Since moving in we’ve made a few little updates to the outside. Here’s how the house was looking when moved in:
And a few little updates later:
My mom came down and helped me with the window boxes. The front of the house is in full shade so we had limited options for plant. We planted New Guinea impatients, potato vines and sea grasses.
The heavens opened while we were planting the window boxes and the planters…
I picked up these great planters a few years back at Target. I love them! We used potato vines, sea grasses and lovely lobelia in the plantes. Don’t the look sweet?
Also on the porch is a lovely nautical rug by the Rugged Sailor. Alli, the owner, of the Rugged Sailor hand painted it for me and customized the details I wanted on it. I chose our zip code in Scituate and a whale. Isn’t that whale super cute?!?
Check out these:
Nothing says summer in New England to me more than lovely blue hydrangeas. I can’t take any credit for these. The previous owner planted these and they are stunning. Conor and I have been clipping some and bringing them in to be enjoyed indoors too!
The sign on the door was a gift from dear friends as a house warming gift. My parents gave the beautiful flag to John & Conor.
Summertime and the living is easy… Just ask Poppy!
