It’s the first day of spring and we finally have some beautiful spring weather! The sunshine and warmer temperatures lift my spirits and get me thinking about my yard.
As a result, I have been busy getting my yard ready for planting and doing several yard-related projects. We just finished getting a drip irrigation system installed in all of our beds and, oh boy, did we need that! I’m so hopeful that this new system will help keep more plants alive. I’ve lost so many during these past few years with the drought.
Hopefully, I’ll be sharing some of my completed yard projects soon (they’re still in progress)!
One “project” I’m working on is getting my front porch all spruced up. I want to get some new outdoor pillows, move a few things around and freshen a piece or two up with some paint. So I started doing a little playing with a mood board to help me get a vision. When I have lots of ideas in my head swirling around, it always helps me to put things together where I can see them.
Here’s my spring front porch inspiration:
I am going for a more colorful look on the front porch this year.
I am loving this fabric from fabric.com
I think it’s so fresh and colorful. It feels like summer just looking at it!
I also love these galvanized planters from Pottery Barn:
They add a casual, rustic charm I think.
The best part is, you can get this look for a lot cheaper than major retailer prices. I’ve seen buckets at the hardware store that would look just as cute for a fraction of the price.
I’m getting so anxious to get things moving outside, but the forecast still calls for some more chilly nights so I can’t go all out yet.
In the meantime, I think I’ll be ordering that cute fabric so I can sew a couple of pillows.
How about you? Are you planning for spring yet?
