Spring on the Front Porch........

..........The thing that gives a big first impression as someone walks up to a house is the front door. It should be a good one. When trying to decide whether or not to buy this house I had the  thought that the front door would have to go.

Well, ten years later the same door is still here. It does not give the impression I would rather have but recently painting it black helped some.

This year's door decoration is this flat-backed basket with a spring, floral look.

After the birds moved in it looks a little more spring-like.


To the left of the door is this pretend window.

It also sports a floral look using that bright chartreuse green that goes well with spring.


The Easter cactus was a little late blooming or maybe Easter came a little too early, but it sure has been putting on a show for about three weeks.


The front porch is a favorite hangout for the chameleons.  They don't bother me and I don't bother them.
Also hanging out on the front porch for years now, is this rabbit foot fern.
Look at all that rabbit fur wrapped around the pot.

Across from the fern on the other side is Timid rabbit.  But, don't let him fool you. He sees everything and guards the front porch quite well.
So, should you show up on my front porch, I will try to give you a warm welcome!


  1. Very nice! I like the wreath on the door the grapevine wreath in the planter box- what a smart idea! Your bunny looks ferocious! LOL.. My Thanksgiving Cactus is blooming again. Your Easter Cactus is brilliant in color and so full of blooms! I've never seen a rabbit foot fern- that's pretty wild!

  2. I don't know what you have in mind for the ideal entry to your home, but I'm pretty fond of it the way that it is. Each time I've visited I have felt welcomed by it, but mostly by YOU and that is what is what is most important. Great picture of you!

  3. Your porch is beautiful and so welcoming. Love the picture of you by the door. The basket is lovely, you did an amazing job with it and so is the wreath. Very, very nice. Thanks so much for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty
