Make a Plan May : My Front Porch

Last week I promised I would share my own front door, and my plan to spruce it up for this year.  Last year I made lots of changes (painted the door, new lights, etc…you can read about it here), so this year I am just focused on smaller details.  I started this year with a green/white color palette for all my plants and I will spend the rest of the summer gradually filling in the holes with some more shade-loving perennials.


I have plans for a little bench, and I need to add a flag to the empty flag holder that is currently being used to hold that plant (it looks weird there, i can see that now).  And, I have been figuring out how I can add window boxes to the windows on each side of the door, without needing to drill into the brick, since we just rent.  I’m still brainstorming ideas…if you have any let me know!

And, thinking farther ahead…I would love to add something on either side of the door that matches, a little symmetry to mirror the symmetrical facade of my house…but I haven’t had any inspiration hit for that yet.

That’s my little plan…have you made one for your front door?
