When I got home from work today, I just felt stifled by all of the plants and stuff on my front porch! I just started cleaning! I scrubbed the porch with soap and water and a broom! I moved a large ice chest, and some shoes my husband wears to cut the grass. I took all of my succulent plants and moved them to their new sort of home base (these are the ones who need partial sun, or a little protection)...in my screen room out back. I put them all over two plastic tables out there, for now.
I moved a huge Pothos (which was on the top of my cinderblock shelving) and took it in the house and placed it at the end of my entertainment center, so you see it right when you come in the front door (a nice Feng Shui touch, don't you think)...and here is what it looks like! It has grown very lush out there, kind of as I wasn't looking....it was a pleasant surprise to find it so thick and LONG!
So here is how my shelves ended up looking on the front porch when I got finished!
Here is a close up of the really nice set of characters from Wizard of Oz, my daughter and I found while thrift shopping a few weeks ago...I love them for here because they are made of a high quality plastic, and are safe from total destruction, anyway! My husband always says I live in a fantasy world, and I suppose there is some truth in that!!!
I found this glass flag windchime at a artist sale a few years ago, and you can see a peice of one of my chimes broke off. I have the peice around here somewhere...I just need to fix it with my E6000 glue.
I painted this wooden star to remember my son who is currently serving in the U.S. Army, and I think of him and his family every minute and pray they will stay safe!
I am very proud of him, as you can see!
