What is black and white and red all over?
Did you guess?
The answer is our back porch.
I thought we needed some summer patriotic color for Independence Day. I planted red begonias and white impatiens in our planters. Our porch gets partial shade. These plants are thriving and seem to be a good choice for the space.
We have a long way to go on our "new" home. We are tackling one project at a time. We are currently working to spruce up the exterior.
Here is a list of some of our 'to do' projects. We've accomplished the first four so far. I hope to have more progress to share with you soon.
