Let me be honest with you, I am not much of a gardener. I will buy and plant flowers but then once the summer heat hits, I pretty much give up watering them and they die. Last year I didn't buy or plant a single flower. And the fact that this isn't our forever home makes me not want to plant a bunch of pretty things only to have leave them all behind again. This year, I am hoping things will be a little different!
I don't have a front porch to decorate so I do what I can with the flower bed in the front of my house. The only thing I bought for this was some planting soil and a few flowers.
I can't wait to see how these flowers grow under my care. Hopefully they will prosper all summer long!
I love Hostas and this one looks fantastic planted in my vintage metal bucket. There are a few bright pink Dianthus in with it.
My old window is always the perfect backdrop. I want to make a wreath to hang on it but for now this sweet little bunting will work just fine!
I had some tea cups that were given to me (they aren't vintage or anything special) so I decided to make a little decoration with a nest and egg in it. It looks so cute hanging on this little shepherd's hook.
I got purple and pink flowers this time around. Depending on how I do, I might have to go get some more!
I got this wire cage thing in an estate sale lot. It wasn't part of the lot but they threw it in and I had a tiny little planter that fits right in the bottom of it.
This chippy, rusty watering can planter is always a favorite of mine. The rusty color really stands out on the pretty white chair.
I am going to do my best to keep these pretty flowers alive! Wish me luck!
