All winter this dreary wall looked in on me.
And I remembered the lush green of our much loved “Margaritaville”, all the great times we’ve enjoyed there and the buds that would surely emerge in the spring.
It’s finally beginning.

Although this year I guess it will be “Sodawaterville“.

  • Sodawaterville it is! It's all in the presentation and the ambience, not so much about the contents of the beverage. I love drinking diluted fruit juice in a wine glass, sipping slowly and savoring the cool drink in the fragile glass. I'm raising my single short nonfat decaf latte' (fondly referred to as a “why bother”) to you right now! Cheers!

    I like Jenny's comment and also like the ambience of this space in the picture….it seems like your own courtyard, very nice…..reminds me of Europe and places I stayed in Florence with daughter. The vine appears to be recovering from the winter..wondering what type of vine? .. and other pots as well along the other wall. A wall painting might be nice in winter if landlord would agree, but then you might not want to take down the vines…I have regrettably killed a old establisned Dutchmans Pipe vine in laying it down for painting. Glad you are getting back to Margaritaville, even if its soda.

  • Ooh Ooh! I have an idea. Get some artsy friends who are great with painting and have them paint you up a lovely wall of leafs and tendrils! That way when your dreary winter comes, you won’t feel so despondant!nSeriously, that winter wall is just screaming for some fun 🙂

    Yes! also maybe a mural, and if not permitted to paint the wall maybe some panels that could slip behind the vines….I am imagining (I get carried away) your daughters painting beautiful tulips surrounding a statue of gratitude with a gorgeous sunset behind…..(or maybe a dishevelled Jimmy Buffet ?)just need the artsy friend to design it.
