With the longer days and warmer temperatures here lately, it's been nice spending time out on the porch.
No longer grabbing a coat to let the pup out and encouraging her to "hurry", I just sit on the porch and rock.
While rocking I noticed the pansies that I planted in the urns last fall were getting leggy,
and I still had my fall wreaths on the front doors,
so I headed out to get some spring flowers for this southern front porch!
Ferns are a staple on southern porches and often my first choice,
like these from last spring.
But I couldn't make up my mind which plants to use this time,
so I looked, and looked,
and finally decided on my second favorite...
The dogwoods are just beginning to flower here in NC and they are gorgeous!
So I filled the sweetgrass baskets with dogwood stems and moss.
and oh so southern.
I've been trying to decorate for spring this year with little to no cost.
Investing in baskets that can be used over and over again, the spring touches for the front doors was only $6 each for the dogwood sprigs.
The geraniums were only $8 each, so it was only $28 to add spring flowers to the front porch!
Ellie-Mae was keeping me company and watching for squirrels to chase.
Have you started planting spring flowers?
Hope you are having a great day!
