It took me two days of cleaning so that I could refresh my upper back porch.
Although it was not a pleasant task of cleaning the furniture cushions
and the porch area of the pollen that had fallen while I was away . . .
it was worth it, as I am so enjoying my upper back porch dressed for Spring!
I adorned the porch with lots of happy Spring flowers that I purchased
from various garden centers.
For me, refreshing the porches for Spring means bringing in lots of beautiful Spring blooms.
I found this beauty of a combination of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths
at my local Lowe’s Home Improvement. They were a great price, so I bought two!
I found this pretty blue flower pot in a diamond pattern at my favorite
privately owned garden shop (Dale’s Greenhouse in Sanford, NC)
for the great price of $7.20.
I thought it would be perfect for my assorted Spring flower container garden.
I always love the reflections that the mirror on the tea cart present.
The other Spring flower container garden landed on the vintage Singer sewing table
in other corner of the porch.
My hydrangea bushes are not ready for their blooms just yet
so I get my hydrangea fix by buying them from the garden centers!
As another season is here, it is time to refresh and reuse some pillows.
I found these pretty watercolor’esque floral pillows at HomeGoods the other day.
I loved that they coordinated well with the new petunia color this year
of yellow and black. The black also seems to give an appearance of a deep purple too.
My hubby said this was his favorite Spring flower
that I had brought home among the other Spring blooms.
He loved that the color was so dramatic. Wow! He notices! (Well, he actually does)
I have been seeing these great “curly ferns” this Spring
and finally broke down and bought a couple of them.
They say these particular ferns do not shed and also do well indoors.
It has been a while since I was able to sit on the porch and enjoy the view
with a favorite afternoon refreshment.
Love my Moravian lemon cookies with Pellegrino!
I think my “little lady” approves of the Spring Porch this year.
I am looking forward to sitting out here and enjoying the view
in-between refreshing the two other porches! One porch down, two to go!
See you next week with my Spring Front Porch Refresh.
The fountains have been cranked up and they are working well
after a “Long Winter’s Nap”.
I want to wish you all a most Joyous Easter with your loved ones!
Have a beautiful, beautiful day!
