In Which I’m All Doocey

For the longest time my front porch has been decorated only with three crinkly dead plants and a disintegrating doormat, and the front door has red mud handprints made by boys who paw the door while trying to grasp the door handle.

Yesterday I tossed the plantings of death and went to the local garden shop looking for something funky to spruce up the place, because how many Boston ferns do we really need in the Tiny Kingdom?

I was thrilled to find crocodile ferns that I paired with dieffenbachia. Now my pots say welcome, but don’t get too comfortable here.

  1. That really is a fantastic photo!

    LMAO @ Doocey

  2. Great photo! Nothing grows on my front porch, it’s got too much shade, and heat in the death of summer.

  3. All the plants in the world will not spruce up my front poarch until we repaint the shutters and door- they have gone from a rich burgandy to an anemic mauvy color. Love that Croc fern though.

  4. You sure found funky! Really cool. If you get time you’ll have to take a full porch shot so we can see the finished results.

  5. You, Dooce and MetroDad are my favorite bloggers. Hands. Down.

    Congrats on taking the time to spruce up your front door. I’ve been waiting for weeks to do that. The almanac says it’s supposed to snow here in late April, so I’m trying to hold off until then.

    After that, my Hubby has a LONG Honey-Do List that should keep him busy for… the summer. 🙂

    Aimee’s last blog post..Insomnia still sucks.

  6. I love the Croc fern – did you wear matching Crocs while planting? I’m probably the only person who doesn’t wear them – just give me my bronze Reefs!!

    I purchased two coral hibiscus plants ($7.95 @ Lowes), basket of yellow lantana ($7.95 also), and two dark purple sweet potato vines ($2.95 each) and hope to get them in my urns today, despite the chilly, cloudy weather. I have full sun and have never been able to grow geraniums out there. The urns came from the place behind the Summit back when it was out 280 toward Chelsea ($35 each). I’ll take a photo when it’s done and send.

  7. How in the world did I miss that title a few days ago? *snort*
