I don’t have a porch, per se, but I do have some space in the front of my house that’s somewhat private thanks to a shade tree. I chose this spot for my grandparent’s swinging bench and had been waiting for the weather to turn so I could put out flowers & cushions for the swing.
I love these cushions that came from Home Depot in January – they were $1 each. I’ll be moving a larger planter on the right side and adding a few more colorful pots. These two were $1 and $5 on various sales and match the cushions. I’m thinking of white and purple flowers for the pots and the planter.
update on the update!
After a trip out to Home Depot and then Wal-Mart I’m just about done with the flowers! I found two more containers and used the old wood one with the dead hydrangeas in it. I just washed the dirt off my hands so I’ll have to grab the little stakes and tell you what all the flowers are later. But here are some pics:
