More Blue Sevres and Stepping Stones Met

For BLue Monday, I would like to show you a pair of Sevre urns on ormolu pedestals. I saw them in an antique shop downtown and I gave them to John for his birthday last April.
They are quite tall, about 2 and a half ft. The store owner gave me a good deal or I would have never been able to afford them.

And John liked them!! Now, don't miss going to Sally's at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ so you can see and enjoy lots of amazing blues!

It is also Met Monday, hosted by Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/. Today, I have a very minor metamorphosis.

I have been looking for anything to grow in between the stepping stones to the arbor and between the brick floors on the gazebo. I bought 800 seeds of creeping thyme on ebay and would you believe that not a single one sprouted?
Anyway, yesterday, John and I went to Lowes and asked the lady at the plant nursery about what we could plant and she suggested ajuga so we bought some and I planted them this morning.

This is the before.
And this is after. I hope they spread fast.
Before
After
I like it, do you? But I don't think this will work in between the bricks on the gazebo floor. I need something with smaller leaves. I transplanted a few Irish moss. I hope it grows. But that will be a post for another day. I also bought more creeping thyme on Ebay but I bought plants instead of seeds. I can't wait for them to arrive so I can plant them.
Thank you all for coming by. Thanks to Susan and Sally for another fun Monday!
