Front Porch Summer 2014

I was in the mood for color this year on my front porch.  I planted bright colored flowers and found some red polka dotted pillows from Target.  A small hail storm wrecked a little havoc on my red geranium blooms, but they still look pretty good.

I brought my ladder back out because the corner looks boring without it.  One day I will figure out how to decorate it better.

I shared this area recently.  My fern is growing bigger.  We have had lots of rain for our area which is wonderful because we have been in a drought for over a decade.  My plants are happy and so am I.

My pots can cost a small fortune to fill with flowers.  It gets so hot and dry that they start looking sad by mid summer.  So this year I planted mostly succulents.  I love them and they are much easier to care for and cheaper than flowers.

My favorite one is the one that has pink edges.

I found a little shop where a guy builds bird houses.  I had him build this one for me.  He uses the ends of pickets from fences that have rotted roof tops.  It’s my favorite thing about this.

I really enjoy coming out to my front porch this year.  I hope we keep getting rain so that my plants stay happy.

My 1986 Yamahopper

I love quirky things so when I saw my friend’s moped and he said he might sell it, I knew it had to be mine.  I bought it for our future farm.  We dream of living in the country on lots of acres in the next few years.  I thought my moped might be fun to use to drive down country roads or get the mail.  For now, we take our dog (Izzy) for rides in our neighborhood.

I got Izzy some goggles for her rides.  She sure looks cute in them, but she really doesn’t like them.

Front Door Décor Spring/Summer 2014

I revamped my metal bucket that hangs by my front door after the baby birds left the nest and their poop all over the old faux flowers.  I added a punch of red to go with the red geraniums I planted in my front flower bed.

Inspiration with a Photo

I do some photography on the side.  This week I took some track photos for my friend of her son.  He is an amazing hurdler and is going to compete in state this weekend.  I found this perfect quote to go with a photo I took of him and wanted to share it.

Spring time on the Porch

I love spring other than the wind in the Texas Panhandle.  I have done a bit of front porch decorating.  I am actually in the mood this year to do some planting so I will have more to show you as the threat of a freeze decreases. 

I found the cutest birdhouse yesterday.  It reminded me so much of my mom.  I put it on my porch along with her tall birdhouse I have has since she passed away 14 years ago.

I love how off center the hole is and the colors of the wood.  The man I bought this from is working on something for me I will hopefully be sharing soon.  The idea looks good in my head and hopefully it will in real life as well. 

I also found the cute rosemary topiary bush yesterday.  I am gravitating more towards plants than flowers these days.

I like the simplicity of them.  I did add my usual faux flowers to the metal container by the door.

A pair of  house finches left me a cute surprise inside of it.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter and Spring.
