My Colorful Spring Front Porch

I am ready to share with you my front porch that is ready for spring and summer. 

In my previous post, I shared with you all our refurbished patio furniture. After we completed that project, I was inspired to pick up some plants and brighten up the front porch. 

Front View

Here is my Simple Spring Yarn Wreath from a previous post. 

Our front porch is mostly in shade, so I love using ferns every year. 

I have had these pots by my front door for several years and I usually plant impatient's and caladium's, but this year I decided to see how some hosta's would do on the porch.  So far, so good. 

Another fern and a type of petunia basket that came from Lowe's. 

This planter got a coat of the bronze paint and I filled it with dwarf mondo grass and caladiums. 

I love my rooster plant holder.  I have had it for years,  I added a pot filled with bright pink impatient's. 

I found this beautiful mandevilla hanging basket at WalMart. 

It's a trailing plant, so I will keep it trimmed but I love the pretty pink color and the fullness. 

Here is a side view of the porch from our driveway. 

I love my porch this year.  I am hoping all of these beautiful plants make it through a hot Texas summer!

Thank you for looking!

See you on the next post. 

Hugs, Shelly
