MY GOOD OLE AMERICAN FRONT PORCH!

Well yesterday was it...I hauled out my red white and blue flag bunting and draped the porch! It always puts me in a good mood when I am decorating the porch...espicially in the summer when the flowers are out and everything looks so green and vibrant and HAPPY! I am ADDICTED TO SWEET POTATOE VINE AND BACOPA!! They always put on a great show!

I just planted the fancy coleus today...got 10 4 inch pots for only .50 each! Hopefully they will come along..they are frilly and so colorful..............

There is just something about RED! It just brightens up everything...even my mood sometimes. These are three of my favs....old watering can, crock and bucket...........




A garden just isn't complete without a bee skep...I am in LOVE with these too! This one is gradually starting to bite the dust BUT to help it last a bit longer, I painted it white (dry brush) and sprayed it with a coat of poly. Hopefully I can have it for another summer.

What's on your front porch??????? Have a great day!! :0)

Oh, I just love how you've decorated your porch! My screened porch is my favorite place in the house. I've had to move everything off of our front porch due to our lab puppy and his chewing/destroying stage he's in right now.

LOVE your great porch goodies! I love bacopa also, it's so sweet and dainty. Your red trio is a perfect addition, and I would love to find an old bee skep. Thanks for the showing.

Mmmm Mmmmm Mmmmm. Your porch is just yummy! Unfortunately we only have a front stoop, but someday I hope to have a real porch like yours. Your plants look lovely and healthy. I have a bee skep just like yours!

LOOKS GREAT!! Nothing better then relaxing on a nice big prim porch and of course being surronded by flowers is an added bonus : )

I have front porch envy! I can't tell you how much I would love a large covered porch with a row of rocking chairs!
We have room for a doormat and two urns.

Your porch looks so inviting! There's nothing like "porch sitting" on a summer evening. We use ours so much, a great place to set and watch the world go by! Have a great day, Dawn

Hi Beth
Your porch looks so inviting and festive. We are going to be away for the weekend so I didn't even decorate for the 4th, but I love what you've done.
