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.
