My Favorite Garden Memories This Year
Since this is my last Wordless Wednesday post of the year, I decided to share some of my favorite ‘gardening’ events from 2009:
Front Entry Mini Makeover
Every couple years my front porch starts to look a little shabby. To spruce it up this year, I painted the porch a nice black color and replanted the urns. One of these days I’m going to resurface the front porch with stone and replace the front walk with a more natural walkway. Until then, a new coat of paint does wonders.
Left (front yard urns): Boxleaf Hebe, Aurea Heather, Black Mondo Grass & Scarlet Leader Cotoneaster
Right (back yard urn): Orme Hebe, Spring Torch Heather & Scarlet Leader Cotoneaster
In just a couple hours I went from hating my front porch to accepting it – almost liking it. I bet when the urns fill out – I’ll love this spot even more.
What’s funny is that last time I painted the porch I pretty much just painted it the color of concrete. Then because I picked a laytex paint it scratched off the show the green paint underneath – I hated it from day one.
