Crystal Light Liquid wanted to know how I was adding vibrancy to my life so I decided to spruce up our front porch with some color. I mean, it is starting to look a little like spring here in central Indiana after all. And with spring comes new life and lots of color– something that was lacking on our front porch.
Now that you saw the after, let’s review the before. Our front porch looks so sad and lonely, no? And yes, we were those people rockin’ the Christmas welcome mat months past December 25th. Don’t judge me. At least our Christmas lights were taken down before the end of January.
I started with a trip to Target for some things– a welcome mat wasn’t on my list. But when I passed by this colorful little guy I knew I had to put him in my cart. It also helped that the mat was 20% off. It’s hard for me to pass up a sale.
And nothing says spring like pansies, so I headed to Lowes to pick up some pretty blooms.
I decided to try something different with our behemoth flower pot on our front porch by adding a smaller pot in the middle to give it a tiered look. I planted the purple pansies in the top tier and the yellow pansies in the bottom tier. I’m liking it so far.
Pansies are the perfect flower for spring. They add a great punch of color, and they’re tolerant of the crazy Indiana spring weather.
I also picked up a fern while at Lowes. I’ve been wanting to hang something on our front porch for a while, and I’ve never owned a fern so I figured, why not? The plant care card rated it “tolerant” so I’m hoping that translates to “hard to kill”.
Ta-dah! Our happier and more colorful front porch to welcome our guests and spring.
After all my hard work of planting flowers and hanging ferns, it was time for a nice refreshment.
