Front Porch

I adore having a front porch….it is a sheltered place to enjoy cup of coffee in the morning,  feel the warmth of the sun setting in the evening.
It is also a sheltered place where many of my container pots are thriving!
I so enjoy my work space at my potting bench.  And…bonus…it gives me some display space as well.  It’s the little details that you catch at a glace the gives me the little joys.

My morning glory earlier in the summer…

And now as they are draping all over the place – lush and full!

I’ve fallen in love with these metal chairs…they started off a chippy rusty white {which sounds delightful doesn’t it?}
But sitting on them might have required a tetanus shot so I scraped, sanded and painted to this fresh pop of red!

I planted this lazy susan vine in a galvanized bucket & popped it out by the kids swingset and it is going to town….love it every time I walk by! home 044 home 045
I planted tomatoes for the first time!   Of course I had to pop them into the huge galvanized tub and they are flourishing…soon I’ll be overflowing in tomatoes!  Having them up on the deck makes for easy access to water and also keeps slugs etc away.
