Myriam, the wall is beautiful with the containers. Does it surround you garden? It makes me think of where I grew up.

Thank you Lynn! Smiling My garden is entirely walled around as it is a town garden, the walls are very old from around 1880 and the joints between the bricks were crumbling down, the wall on the right side is very tall, around 9m, only that upper part (on the photo) which borders the balcony, I have covered with a special mixture of white cement, yellow and white sand, wanting to give it a warm and sunny Mediterranean touch, most of the hanging pots I also made myself, or gave them a personal touch. The rest of the walls are covered with climbing plants, mostly Ivy, very much appreciated by my birds, but also Jasminum officinalis and the Virginian Creeper.

What a wonderful thing to have. How do you attach the containers to the wall. The entire wall is a treasure.

Thanks Lynn, the pots have two holes on top, to hang on a screw in the wall or sometimes inbuilt metal loops that hook onto the screws.

In all honesty, if I got her over here we wouldn't be working. I would be taking her to all the amazing nurseries the state of Oregon has.
I have wanted to meet her in person for a very long time. Smiling
