We were so lucky to get an apartment with a porch! (I had almost given up hope on having outdoor space) But here we are and its a huge! We absolutely enjoy life out there! Herbs and flowers were planted in pots throughout the space and we also tried to include as many climbing vines as possible too to grow up and over the railing. I bought our plants at both Bachman's and Highland Nursery and i'm very pleased with the quality from both but Highland had some really really fun varieties!
This Spring's Porch freshly planted up.
This summer's porch in bloom!
"Of all the wonderful things in the wonderful universe of God, nothing seems to me more surprising than the planting of a seed in the blank earth and the result thereof."--Julie Moir Messervy
"Kiss of the sun for pardon. Song of the birds for mirth. You're closer to God's heart in a garden than any place else on earth." -- Dorothy Frances Gurney
Planters now! (and Kayden, my cat, enjoying them... especially the chives!)
