May’s Front Porch Gets Started

May’s front porch is a work in progress, as the weather warms and more plants and flowers are added.  It started modestly last week, with a fresh tablecloth and a few items on the table.  

A floral flag waves a welcome.  

Today I added bright pink New Guinea impatiens to the table.  An indoor ivy plant has come outside for fresh air and warmth.

In the next few weeks, once the danger of frost has truly passed, more of my indoor plants will come outside for warmth and sunlight.  Flowers will be added to hang from the hooks and fill the flower bins.  By the end of this month, the porch will become a verdant extension of the house.  I look forward to spending many happy Summer hours out here.
