#yardworkpaysoff 2

 I shared with you the front yard last week. Now, I'd like for you to view the space from a different angle. One of my favorite features in the garden is the trained confederate jasmine on the fence.

The front porch is another favorite spot for J and I to sit back and relax.

The #yardworkpaysoff contest sponsored by Perino's Garden Center ends on July 31. I'll keep you posted.

Staycation {Camie visits}

 It's always great to have a visitor in town. J's BFF from his days at Indiana University visited New Orleans for a long weekend, and we filled our time eating, drinking, shopping, and visiting. We even braved the record temperatures here on Saturday to venture out to some of our favorite locales.

The list includes:

  • LaBoulangerie
  • Home Malone
  • Hazelnut 
  • Miss Smarty Pants
  • Sotre
  • Perch
  • Hotel St. Vincent
  • Clancy's Restaurant 
  • La Petite Grocery
  • Dunn and Sonnier
  • The Columns
  • The Chloe
  • The Roosevelt
  • Jeremy Davenport Lounge {The Ritz-Carlton}
  • Superior Seafood
  • Theo's Pizza
  • and lots and lots of parlor patter!

It was a jam-packed weekend of fun and catching up! It's always so nice to have such a low-maintenance house guest.

 Perino's Garden Center along with McEnery Residential have partnered together for a fun landscaping contest. Simply by placing a sign in the yard and posting a photo on social media, we are entered in the contest which runs until the end of July. J and I decided to enter the contest after spending lots of $$$ on plants through the years. The winner will be awarded one of three cash prizes. We are also very proud of the front garden. It has really grown well over the last three years. Here are the photos I submitted:

I'll keep you posted on the results!
