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.
