Just a couple of patriotic photos to share with you.
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.
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.
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.
Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
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.
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.
