I have been patiently waiting for the all clear of the pollen season to be over,
so that I could start on refreshing the porches for Spring.
Today, I present the upper back porch. One of the three porches that we use the most.
My friend Martha who relocated to the Lone Star State had this beautiful flower pot
that I inherited which is the inspiration piece for my Spring decor for the porch.
I remembered that I had a pillow with a lemon/citrus design
that I used in my Summer Sunroom last year.
So off to the one of my linen closets where I store my pillows
and on to the porch they went. Pillows of blue, yellow, and green from Pottery Barn.
The perfect compliment to my inspiration piece.
My only new purchases for the porch would be the coordinating striped outdoor pillows
that I purchased from HomeGoods and a few plants.
A closer look at my inspiration piece containing a beautiful Peace Lily.
I usually make a grouping of the seasonal plants and flowers of the season
in this corner.
I have my token Hosta on the upper porch as it is the only place
where the deer cannot get to it, unless they have wings and can fly.
In the opposite corner of the porch is my tea cart.
I use it mainly to display my plants, such as this ivy round topiary.
The topiary seems a bit larger due to the reflection in the mirror.
Oh, I forgot about this cute purchase from my favorite garden center.
Garden stools for handy tables for plants or beverages.
I am still enjoying my blue and white Chinoiserie indoor/outdoor rug
that I purchased last year from Frontgate.
Yet, the coffee table serves serves that purpose very well too.
Today, it is lemonade with my favorite tangy cheese florets.
I think this is my favorite Spring Upper Porch as I love the beautiful colors
of the blues, greens, and yellows.
It makes me happy that I can see it from all the rooms on the main level of the house.
Does a pretty porch or deck make you happy too?
I am moving on to the front porch . . . making a big change there in one corner.
Have a beautiful Spring day, hopefully taking time
to sit in your favorite chair or rocker on your porch or deck.
