Simple Sunday – Living Wall

Yesterday, while the boys were attending a birthday party for one of their friends, Husband and I had a whole hour and a half to ourselves.  We were planning on going to Costco, Target, and the Post Office – you know, be productive and all that but one look at the full parking lot at Costco and we could just feel our brief alone time slipping away.  We looked at each other and kept driving.

We ended up at a small bakery where we grabbed a couple cups of coffee to go.  We sipped our hot coffee and strolled around the little town we call home.  We came across an amazing wall landscaped with living plants.  I did not have my camera with me.  Today with the kids in tow we set off to run the errands we neglected yesterday.  We made a quick stop at the plant wall so I could take a couple pictures to share with you.  Hope you like them as much as I do.

  1. Good for you and your husband to take a moment to enjoy each other’s company! A simple joy, just being together, isn’t it?

  2. Loved the line “We looked at each other and kept driving.” Good stuff. I love when life interrupts our carefully laid plans. Sounds like the right call.

    We have a wall like that at our home depot! Very pretty.

    Your photos are lovely. I like how the plants look like they are floating on grey clouds. Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA recently added a huge living wall to their indoor conservatory. It added so much texture and visual interest.
