Screened Porch, Ready for Warm Weather

Every year, we bring this small ladder to the screened porch to hold my plants/flowers.  It just doesn't seem right without it.  I went to the store this afternoon to buy plants for the pots, and stopped by Dollar General and picked up a few pretties for the porch too.

I found this sweet bird house.  I loved its unusual shape, and the bright colors.  Of course I had to have this pretty bird too.

The bird and bird house are perched on top of the ladder.  Then I have two post with spider plants left from a year ago.  Today, I bought Ivy, Creeping Jenny, petunias, and the large purple plant (can't think of the name).  I only purchased purple and green items.


 I hope the Creeping Jenny does well.

 This little blue bird was only a dollar.  


 Petunias

 Did you notice the little yellow chicken?


I had to transplant this "big boy" again this year, this time into a large galvanized tub that my mother had. The tub is at least 45 years old.


While buying plants, I got this one for the inside.  It reminds me of the fig plant some have, but it is a type of schefelera.  I need to shop the basement for a pot for it.


Now I feel like the screened porch is ready to be enjoyed.

 Ready for some relaxation!!
