I thought I'd post this photo for CHM, mainly. It's a winter jasmine plant that he gave us a few years ago. He also gave us a white summer jasmine, but that one didn't survive one of our cold wintertime cold snaps. I bought the pot this yellow jasmine grows in and we placed it right outside our greenhouse, so that we can see it from inside. It has bloomed nicely this year. Those are thyme plants growing on the ground around the pot.
I'm also posting my photo of the new chest of drawers, which I think is an attractive and a useful furniture acquisition. It was a pain to put together (Walt did the job), and the delivery from the merchant was botched, but the final result is good. Tout est bien qui finit bien. I'm in the process of filling up the drawers with socks, T-shirts, and other articles of clothing.
When I saw the new dresser, it reminded me a little of this chest that we bought in 1983 and is one of just a few pieces of furniture that made the cut when we moved everything we could realistically move to France in 2003. The simple, unadorned look of both these dressers is a look we both like. Both are in our loft space, where the walls are painted white and the floor is knotty pine boards. The loft (650 sq. ft.) is our private space, where we spend evenings and where we sleep.
