Adding Color to my Summer Porch

I love puttering around in my yard! The last few weeks have been hectic! I have been busy weeding, mowing, and getting my garden ready for the summer. I have been basking in the glory of warmer temperatures and beautiful sunshine!
I love adding summer colors to my front porch!

Summer annuals provide the opportunity to add gorgeous color to any corner of your porch instantly!

 Fragrant pink Dianthus looks beautiful inside a black metal plant stand next to the front door:

 In addition to using them as candle holders, lanterns make pretty planters and add interest to your front porch. 

The blue lobelia contrasts prettily with the white lantern:

I placed the potted lobelia inside this burlap cinch bag found at Walmart.

Loving the contrast in color and texture between the delicate blue lobelia and the burlap bags.

Next, I added a big fluffy burlap bow to the top of the lantern:

Evergreens in urns sit on both sides of my front door:

Another plant stand filled with colorful annuals sits on the other side of the door.

A closer look at the blue potteries filled with pretty annuals.

I love planting geraniums in my flower beds and planters. 

Vibrant pink geraniums in pretty blue clay pots scream summer to me:

Pretty pink stocks

and cascading verbenas mixed with yellow daisies:

A basket overflowing with beautiful annuals adorn my front door:

The potted flowers are placed inside the burlap cinch bags and then inserted inside the basket:

Wave petunias in yellow and purple mixed with pink verbenas:

A closer view of my front door over looking the white railing in front:

Summer: A celebration of colors!
