But before we got started, we knew it would need a bit of a clean up.
And here is what it looks like now!
BOLLÖ Chairs and a KALVÖ folding aluminum table from IKEA for $25 each. This is the perfect set up because we can fold them up and tuck them in against the house whenever we need more space on the porch. I took these pictures a week ago, but now there is a little pot of yellow roses on the tabble that my mom gave me that was the centrepiece from my birthday dinner.
By the door I am adding a planter filled with dragon wing begonias and purple wave petunias that will trail down the side, but I need to get more soil before I can plant them.
The little landing was in need of some lovin' too.
Homestead Garden Growers. They are the same people who designed my front garden at the old apartment last year.
I plan to head back and get another strawberry plant from them this year, as well as a couple of plants for a smaller planter I would like to make near the door.
That last thing that needs an update is the shared garden down the steps.
The hostas are beautiful, but I'd love to add some colour in there soon!
