Black, White, and Red All Over

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.

-plant new plants in back porch planters
-put pine straw in plant beds around house
-remove front storm door
-remove old front handrail
-pressure wash driveway and house exterior
-paint all exterior trim
-paint front door
-plant flowers that add seasonal color in planters on front porch
-replace front door hardware, house numbers, light fixture, etc.
-organize storage shed
-paint storage shed

We wish you all a happy Independence Day weekend. We are also celebrating my 29th birthday this weekend. I hope to start blogging more since Judd gifted me an iPad! Do you know of any helpful apps from which to blog when using an IPad?
