Spring Porch

It finally feels like spring around here after a random snowfall in May and record breaking low temps for the month!  We have been working hard in the yard, landscaping, and sprucing things up outside.  For the porch, I reused an old DIY wreath, bought some new pillows for our rockers, and added a few plants/ferns. 

Props to my hubby (and thanks to all the rain we’ve had) for keeping a lovely trimmed, green, edged, and weed whacked lawn!  He is in charge of the lawn, and I am the resident landscaper, mulcher, weed puller/killer, and overall “presentation maker”!!  :)

I love having a front porch and rockers seemed like a fitting choice.  I wanted to keep the porch simple and classic looking.  I love the black accents against our brown house.

I’m still looking for a little outdoor table to put in between the rockers and I will probably change up the wreath for summer.

I trimmed a couple of terra cotta pots in gold and filled them up with greens and pinks.

My mandavilla trellis plant was the only perennial that did not come back this year, so I replaced it the other day.  It should be crawling up the trellis very soon!

I’m working on getting our back patio finished up and have a few more things to plant before I take some pictures.  Soon it will be time to grab a drink and enjoy all of it!  Happy Spring!
