Our front step was an eyesore.
Yep, it was a sad state of affairs.
The green ferns in our large terra cotta pots had bit the dust. These beautiful plants had thrived until about a year ago. Slowly at first, they had wilted, grown brown and limp. Recently, they had started drooping so low that you had to push past them to get in the house. They were GREAT decorations for a spooky Halloween, but definitely not the welcoming vision I wanted for my front door step.
Yes, I know it has been seven months since Halloween. They have looked terrible since then…
