Early Summer on the Porch

Good morning my friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend and will have a beautiful week ahead. My front porch is greeting early summer, and YOU! Welcome! As you know, I love the  blue and orange combo. They are at opposite sides of the color wheel so a beautiful combination. I brought that combo outside to the "porch", in the wreath, the pots and the flowers.
 Looking over here to the right, I have a double hook with a hanging plant and a blue bird feeder that Joe made. It is fun to watch them eating  from the dining room window:)
 I keep my cranes in the garage in the winter and bring them out here in the spring. The bushes were cut back in HALF and have grown like weeds. After they finish blooming we will cut them back again and MOVE them to a better location. I want something smaller here.

 Impatiens are my go to out here since it faces north and gets no sun.
 In the urn I planted some begonias and they are doing GREAT! I also have plans to paint the urn. I am not into the black. I may add some gold to the details or just change the whole color.

I love layering a small rug and the doormat. I got the rug at Target last year and the mat at CVS!!!!

 I made the wreath 2 years ago but still like it here. I store my wreaths by hanging them on a hanger, covering them with a dry cleaner bag and hang them in a closet in the basement.

 I am surprised that the wrens have not tried to make a nest in the wreath this year. One year I had to move it to the side wall because we couldn't go in and out the door:)

 This bird house was a housewarming gift from my sister-in-law. I love it!

Thanks so much for your visit. I hope you all have a great day.
XO, Pinky
