I've wanted a colorful French tablecloth for years
so when I spotted this one at a recent street market,
I had to have it.
The blue and yellow colors gave the patio that warm ambiance of Provence
and it was the perfect size for my bistro table in "Cafe Bleu."
With olives on the print, the fabric is coated with something that resists stains and dirt.
The tablecloth inspired me to spruce up this corner of the garden.
Although it's a bit early to plant annuals, many of my perennials are at their spring peak.
(The blue flower pot picks up the blue of the tablecloth and, yes, it was an alley find!)
This private space in the garden is alive with white candytuft, lavender phlox,
and pale blue forget-me-nots with blue and pink larkspur and red bee balm ready to bloom.
The fragrant lilac bush that hugs this small patio is also peaking.
In back of the bistro table I placed a small bench with watering cans
and a concrete urn holding a transplanted ostrich fern.
So please come on in and join me.
Cafe Bleu is always open.
