How has your week been going so far?
Mine has been good. The weather has been so nice, with warm temps and sunshine. So, I'm not complaining.
I feel so awful for the folks affected by the terrible tornadoes in Texas though. My heart goes out to them. We live with the fear of tornadoes here too, so you never know what can happen.
Around my yard, I've finally added some flower baskets and planted flowers in my porch planters.
I hung flower baskets from this vintage candle holder. It came from an antique store many years ago. It has hanging candle holders with it, but I took them off and hung flower baskets instead. At night, I can convert it back to candles when sitting outside.
Our grass in the front yard looks much better than the back yard. It will look better when it's finished greening up. So, just ignore the splotchy look of it right now.
I hung these yellow flowers off my front porch.
We planted purple petunia's in our porch planters.
I decided not to plant sweet potato vine with it this year because it hides the flowers too much and all you see is the green vine. I have so much green around the front of the house as it is. These flowers should spill over the baskets eventually.
My front door got a new burlap wreath I found at Hobby Lobby too. I thought it was cute. I can use this even in the Fall!
I still plan on getting some ferns to flank the front door. That will give me some color to accent the wood door.
The flowers used on our front porch came from this beautiful nursery.
Isn't it stunning? It's called Lady Slipper. My husband uses them when he needs to buy flowers for his customers. He has a lawn business on the side. They have a great selection with superior quality. They have row after row of greenhouses where they grow everything there and sell it to the public.
The fun thing about shopping there are all the chickens and roosters running around.
They just walk among the plants and "do their thing"! They're quite pretty too.
They're not close to my house though, so we have to drive a bit to get to it. But it's worth the drive.
Doesn't this place make you want to go plant something?
Thanks for stopping by!
