A Beautiful Outdoor Day

Warning: picture overload  :)

Even though it was nice in the house today, it was just too pretty not to get outdoors and work with plants.



I only use this small space beside the step each year for my plants.  Last fall we brought this large plant holder from the lake. Right in front of the house is our drive, so this works good and it's a focal point when someone drives up.

I refilled my mother's old black iron pot, hung 2 ferns, and a hanging basket out neighbor at the lake made and gave to us.
Then a bird feeder, a rain chime, and hummingbird feeder were placed on it too.











While I planted my flowers, my husband pressure washed the pollen from the house.




I cornered my concrete bench, and need to get a few more plants for the small concrete pots.


Welcome!!


Now to the screened porch.  Nothing different from last year, but I worked hard getting the pollen off the floor.  This color really shows it, and it was really deep.



You can see the apple trees in the distance.  Our property once was part of this huge orchard, and some of the neighbors kept part of their trees.


I stuck some white flowers and one rose in this urn for the table.



Our property stops where the mowed grass ends.  The darker green is a relatives pasture.




Every porch needs a swing.


I've had this garland a very long time, so I wrapped it onto this wire wreath form to make a wreath.

My ladder makes a plant tower.



So our porches are ready for the warmer months.

I have one more thing I have to share with you, bought at Good Will of course.  To me it is gorgeous.

 This lovely artwork was dingy around the edges, so I brought it home and painted the sides where the canvas is stretched to the back.  There were loose rusty staples.  Removed those, painted over the ones that were left.


 Someone's gorgeous work for around $1 and change!!


I love this painting.  It's in the sunroom on the aqua door.
