I thought I'd share what our porch and deck are looking like with all of the blooming flowers. I think this is the best year for them to be doing so well!
Welcome to the porch....where we sit in the evenings and talk. It is well worn and used, but that's how things are supposed to be in a home you love.
I think every porch should have a swing, don't you?
The ferns are thriving and the double impatiens are doing well in the shade.
Now for the deck....
This area of the deck doesn't get much sunlight, so the impatiens do well along with ferns. have I ever told you how much I love ferns?
These petunias were in a window box but weren't doing well at all. When we went to the beach, I took them out and set them out in the open so they would get some rain. I came home to see them like this. I was so happy they made it!
I grew up with rocking chairs and swings on porches...always a relaxing way to sit.
Just look at how good all of the flowers are doing!
I really am loving the purple...think I might add them again next year.
I made this birdhouse many years ago. It's been painted many colors, but I think I am liking the white better than anything.
The window boxes on the deck are booming with blooms! All of my petunias have done great this year.
And the gates we have everywhere keep the deer and dogs out so my white stays white and the flowers don't get eaten, lol.
I just love it on the deck. One day, I am going to enclose it all and make it into a sleeping porch. I remember sleeping on Mammaw's porch as a little girl...what sweet memories.
It truly is a magical place to come and escape to.
One thing is for sure...there are plenty of seats for everyone!
And the covering I made for the overhang is still holding strong.
I sure do wish Mammaw could see all of my flowers...how she loved them so.
I hope all of you are having a blessed Sunday and may the coming week be blessed as well.
