Since we were about to have a new baby, I didn't want to get a bunch of flowers that I might not be able to take the best care of this summer, so instead I decided on some low maintenance flowers (and not very many) and called it good for this year. They're not very fancy, but they look good and add some much needed pops of color to our otherwise colorless yard.
This is the pot on our front porch.
Please ignore the filthy dirty table. We've had a lot of rain lately.
Next summer I'd like to do a lot more. I love how cheerful flowers are and how even just a few pots can transform a entry or patio.
