Italian Simplicity: Are You This Brave?

A vine & 4 pots. Voila, lush, done.No foundation plantings, no lawn.

I took this pic over a decade ago in Italy, outside of Lucca, and haven't wavered in my awe of its simplicity.

Good Morning Tara!
Gorgeous...I'd like to know where those vines originate. It looks as though they are growing up from the ground but I don't see any soil if vertical lines up the walls are the stalks. Amazing!
