Fresh Paint & Caribbean Style

Since having our house and front door painted, I’ve been working to spruce up the outside living area a bit. Hanging baskets, potted herbs, flowers on the doorsteps, the works!

Here are some snapshots of the exterior progress…

One can never plant too much basil. Also, did you notice the little kitty in the window in the very first picture above the title of this post? Sweet Merlin is always crying to get outside…

I’m loving the seafoam/peach/yellow combination — makes me feel like we’ve got our own little Caribbean beach cottage in the heart of Apex!

  1. Oh wow!! Your house is adorable!!!! I LOVE it!! Don’t cringe too much when you see my house next week!! Lol

  2. Looking beautiful Cassie – love the paint colors.
    Yes, see Merlin in the window!
    Everything looks healthy and growing on fast now the weather is good.
    Love the tree-form hibiscus – they are always so pretty for Summertime blooms.
    Hope the herbs do well – they should have plenty of light there and thrive – just don’t over-water.

    See you soon.
    Love x
