This past Winter was
Can I get a hallelujah?!

My spring "to do" list was a mile long. Locate white pants, de-ghostify skin, schedule pedicure, etc...But numero uno on the list - updating our front porch planters.
Last October we added some applewood to our planters for our Fall porch.
We decided on some beautiful Asiatic Lilies and Dusty Millers.
To get the planting started we drug out our planting essentials - potting soil, my Digz gardening gloves, a pitcher of water and some miracle grow potion.
I started by adding a decently thick layer of potting soil to the bottom of each planter. I wanted to give the lilies some height. Next, I added the Lilies in the center and started placing the Dusty Millers around the Lilies on all four sides.
I added a little more potting soil to smooth things out, Brent poured on the miracle grow...
and wham bam....SPRING in 5 minutes.
I really love the color and texture combination of the lilies and dusty millers in the slate gray planters - so elegant and fresh! I feel like I should wear pearls and a cardigan when watering my new plants.
I'm surprised how much I like the light pink lilies in front of the bright red front door. To be honest I didn't even consider the front door when we made our choice, but I'm actually digging the combo.
I'm in love - our new planters have given our front porch the sweetest, softest, happiest smile! With this item checked off our "to-do" list our front porch is in tip top shape for Spring!
