Hello Everyone! The weather has been perfect here the last couple of days and it felt so good to be outside. I’ve been busy working on the front porch power washing, scrubbing furniture, washing windows and planting flowers.
This year, I changed things up on the front porch. Having a son and son-in-law in the Army, I went with a more patriotic theme.
I planted a lot of red geraniums.
I don’t think I’ve shown you this wire wall planter.
It was a flea market purchase a few weeks ago. I fell in love with it!
Charlie and I just bought this porch swing yesterday. It is an Amish built. We need to find the ceiling studs to mount it. My plans are to paint it white but I have to wait at least a month before I can paint it. We were told the wood needs to cure.
For now, I placed my coca cola crate wagon on the front porch. I planted lavender and marigolds in it.
This is the other side of the porch. All the Boston Ferns you see were purchased at Lowes for $7.50 a piece. They are huge and so healthy looking.
A table top vignette. I used an old galvanized watering can and planted a red geranium and a snowstorm giant snowflake inside it.
I hung vintage Americana buntings on the porch railings.
Other than a few little things, I’m just about done with the front porch.
As always, thanks for your visit and for your sweet comments. They always make my day!
