To the left, across from the window is actually a big empty dirt area. The plant you see were set there by the movers when we moved in and just sat there in their pots while Hubby went through surgery and recovery.
Then he got in the mood to garden. Here is what the area looks like now.
We even have some little statues in the cinder blocks. And a stained glass bird bath. LOL! Hubby is such a goof sometimes. But our entryway feels so homey, now.
