Happy Tuesday, ladies! A lot of you have noticed that I recently painted the exterior of my house. So... I thought I'd use today as an opportunity to show you---as well as my Southern porch and patios.
This is somewhat of a mega-post today---a lot of pictures to show you: 1 porch, 2 patios, and 2 outfits perfect for Spring & Summer. So, I'm going to keep it short and let the pictures do the talking.
Let's get to the tour.
Today's featured items are black shorts from Ann Taylor and jean shorts from Talbots
Each item is modeled, and I pulled together 2 alternates each, for a total of 4
The shorts are shoppable via a text or image widget
Each alternate is shoppable via a text widget
I've pulled together tons of gardening tools I use, all from Amazon, and all presented in a text widget
I added some gardening tips I've picked up along the way
(that's visually pleasing w/ varying height)
Thriller plants with a height that add drama and vertical interest. Planted in the back of the center of the pot (Dracena, Asters, Cosmos)
Filler adds color and volume and placed in center of pot (Geraniums, Mexican Heather, Petunias, Daisies)
Spiller are trailing plants that spill over the container (Ivy, Vinca, Creeping Jenny)
Once your containers have been planted add Plant tone organic fertilizer
Deadhead flowers once the bloom is spent
Yellow leaves? Too much water or not enough
If your pots are located where rain doesn’t fall then place them in the rain when a storm blows through. Plants perk up and look healthier after being watered by rain.
Yesterday, I featured one of your favorite items this month---a shift dress from Talbots. Make sure to check it out by clicking the link or image below.
