I find in Florida that live plants on my lanai are not a good thing.
The combination of the rain, humidity, concrete etc. just creates a mold that I cannot control. However, I love the touch of color that flowers add. The picture above is of ranunculus in an Italian pottery basket and I use it inside and out. The ranunculus below live in a vintage iron planter that is on the lanai wall.
The poppies below are at the top of the stairs and greet me many times during the day. I have had this arrangement for years and it still makes me smile.
Lastly, the sunflowers which are real. I love the "Under the Tuscan Sun" and the Italian pottery helps create the look.
I have meant to join Vee for her Notecard Party for months. No excuse whatsoever! So today is the day. You can see the other notecards here.
And, of course, the box top with the help of PicMonkey.
