First up, large planters for each side of our 2-car garage door. Luckily, we both agreed on a style pretty quickly. I'm clueless when it comes to flowers, so I headed to the nursery a few blocks away from our house and, with the advice of the nice lady there, picked out some big leafy caladium to plant, as well as some hot pink impatiens for color.
We also dug some old planters out of our basement and put those to good use, too. More impatiens and some different kinds of coleus in the three other planters added even more color and life to our front porch.
We also bought some wicker chairs for our front porch. It took us f o r e v e r to agree on cushions, but
We're really pleased with how everything turned out. Now, if only we can keep the flowers alive, we'll be happy campers! So please excuse me while I go water them. :)
