"The outdoors" keep catching my eye. I fell in love with Chicago last summer because of the ivy covered walls. I save so many images filled with lush landscape.

As I perused my saved images, here are some mental notes I made:
1. Must plant hydrangea bushes

2. If I ever live in a house with a pool, make the steps like a checkerboard

3. When we install a fence in the backyard- cover it with greenery.
4. Vertical Gardens would be awesome for herbs.
5. This takes my breath away. This is a covered patio but this is outdoors done right.

Shall we work on our yards together? I LOVE the patio stones too. xx

After seeing this I am googling where to buy hydrangea bushes in Kansas City and plotting on how to get my husband to make me some window boxes. Thanks for the inspiration!

if you were to plant
a potted garden on a city rooftop, what would it look like?

i am interested in your creative and brilliant thoughts!
