On the Front Porch

6.15.2013

I was looking out the front door the other day after a rain and noticed how my plants and critters on the front porch were looking nice in the right light so I grabbed my camera. This first shot is from inside the front door.

I planted these petunias less than two weeks ago since I was terribly late planting this year. Mr. Savvy brought this old pot around from the back yard. It has aged well outside over the last few years.

This is the best dog ever. He never barks, never begs and doesn't have to be walked.


I picked this little vintage kitty up last year for $3 at a flea market. I love the patina and wear.

I sure hope these plants survive.

A Kimberly Queen fern is tucked in this planter with a burlap bag wrapped around it to cover the plain black plastic bucket.


Mr. Bunny was out in the plant bed, but I decided to place him on the porch.



Enjoy the rest of the weekend and  Happy Father's Day

  1. Hi Kim,

    Wow! The patina on the flowerpot and the rusty texture on the iron planter are charming! How come my black wrought iron bistro set hasn't aged that well? The pretty petals complete the picture!

  6. Your front porch looks great Kim. It reminds me that I have a couple of concrete bunnies that I could put on mine. For some reason it never occurred to me to move them outside. That's what I love about visiting other blogs. Getting new ideas. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  7. Luvly plants and critters :-). Such a sweet little kitty...
    I think my lawn critters got placed on the curb (accidentally ) with the trash this year. I cannot find them. I am sad.
    Happy Weekend!
    Hugs, Gee

  10. So pretty! Love the planter you're using for your fren! My flowers are doing amazingly well, with plentyr of rain and milder temps. I have a couple of planters by the garage doors, and they look the best! I think they're getting just the right amount of sun and shade - they're just flourishing. Very rewarding for this black thumbed girl! :-)

  13. So lovely, Kim! I'm late planting too. I've had flowers to pot for a month but finally got them in last night! I love your "old" pot, and your flagstone porch is beautiful. Kimberly Queens are my favorite go-to summer plant, and I like how you wrapped the pot in burlap. I have some burlap bags too, now I know another way to use them!

  17. Kim, you plants inspire me. I am so excited to be on our new farm, and all of my pots are full a gathered on our hunting cabin porch awaiting the completion of our log cabin home. It is funny how simple things like pots of plants can fill you with feelings for "home". Thanks for sharing.
