I have a question for ya'll. I think I found the house I want to buy in MO, but we are needing to wait until we move there to try to buy the house. I'm praying it is still available when it is time for us to buy, but if it is not, I know the Lord will have a better one for us!
Okay, here is my question. I have been looking at some of the pictures I took of the house. Beside the front porch is a poured, square slab of concrete.
The only thing I can think of doing with it is making a raised flower bed, using stones around the side to match the rest of the porch. Although, if I plant roses along the front, I might just want to use decorative plants instead to not take away from the roses. But does anyone know if it has a purpose?
I just love this wide front porch and have a lot of plans on how to spruce it up. If anyone has a Pinterest board on sprucing up porches, please share so I can follow it!
Here is mine.
Any suggestions on easy, low maintenance perennial (the kind that bloom every year)flowers to plant there? I have a confession to make, I have a black thumb and kill every thing but my ivies! I'll be living in MO, so it will have to be something that grows well there.
Here is the rest of the porch. Eventually I would add gingerbread trim and white pickets railings and stuff to make it look more Victorian? We'll see how it looks after I add porch furniture and a porch swing.
I'll update on my quilting progress in the next couple of days, I've not gotten much done I'm afraid.
I'll try not to bore you with all my house and moving talk!
Have a blessed day!
