Here in Michigan the weather is very unpredictable this time of year. The calendar may say Spring but the weather sure doesn’t lately. It has been grey and dreary every day with cool temps, not my kind of Spring weather.
I am joining my friends Terrie and Tammy as we decorate our porches for Spring. I was able to decorate some when we had that couple of good Spring feeling days. Since then It has been windy and rainy so I was not able to get a video made of everything.
So I had to take the photos I had taken and made a video of the pictures for you. It is not completely decorated the way I want yet but at least it is a start. So then when the weather finally does cooperate I can start on my new raised bed garden area. I will definitely be blogging about that also.
First I made a wreath for the front door, I added a bunny to it for Easter.
I removed all the greenery leftover from Christmas, Yes you heard that right, It has been a long Winter full of flu bugs. I replaced it with some Forsythia branches in my crate on the wall and my old wine barrel.
I put a bird cage I had gotten at a yard sale a couple of years ago out on the porch and filled it with flowers, bunnies and Spring like items.
I spray painted my wall pot holder a sage green and put some terra cotta pots into the hangers and filled them with some faux tulips.
I added my vintage ironing board welcome sign and a couple of rugs by the door. I got this adorable truck at Sams Club, it lights up, so cute! It was the perfect shade of green.
That’s it for my small porch, I am hoping in a couple of weeks to be adding some fresh pansies to the steps in some galvanized pails.
Now you will want to visit my friends beautiful porches. They live in much warmer climates than me so you can get some great inspiration.
