Summer Porch

This was supposed to be titled "Spring Porch", but since I am just getting around to posting and it's almost summer, let's go with that! Here's a look at what our porch/yard looks like this year. I absolutely love this time of year; working in the yard, planting, weeding, etc. It's a bonus that we have had lots of rain this spring and everything is lush and green!

I love a fern. This year, I decided to hang them from the porch, over the rockers. The South rubbed off on me when we lived there…I love a front porch so much.

I kept the same outdoor pillows from last year (Home Depot), and added some faux hydrangeas to a basket on the front door. The black pots hold fountain grass, sweet potato vine, and pink geraniums. The white ceramic stool between the rockers is from Homegoods. The rockers are from Lowe's.

I get lots of questions about our front door color. It is Valspar's "Woodlawn Juniper" in a semi-gloss finish. The hanging lantern is from Lowe's and the house numbers are from Home Depot.

We are tweaking the left side of the house with some additional landscaping that I will share when we actually get it completed. So many projects, so little time!

Hope you are all enjoying being outside as much as we are! xo


  1. So funny, I was just telling my daughter tonight while on our neighborhood stroll that I've always loved hanging ferns on wraparound porches! Your front yard and porch looks lovely.

    1. Thank you so much! I tried bringing a fern indoors last year and it didn't last very long. I guess I will stick to keeping them outdoors only!!

  2. Count me in with the fern lovers, too. Andrea, your front porch looks lovely. Porches are made to be enjoyed and make great conversations better! Thanks for sharing your greenery!


  3. Oh how pretty - love your landscaping. I'm inspired to do something similar to our new house. LOVE IT.
