As soon as the sun came up on March 18, it was back to the attic with the shamrock and out came our Easter cross. This is one of my very favorite door hangers of all, and I was so excited when I found it in Bronwyn Hanahan’s lineup last Spring.
In addition to the new door hanger, I am beyond excited to have Ferns 2.0 out in the pots!!! Yippeee!!!! After many years of leggy and just plain dead flowers in my front pots, last year I had great luck with ferns. They lasted all the way from Christmas to Easter last year, so here’s to hoping for the same in 2016!!
Lest you think everything is always spic and span around here, let me zoom out a bit to show the the space where a shutter fell clean off the house a couple of weeks ago. Yes, a couple of weeks ago. Honey doesn’t do heights so I’ve yet to figure out how to get it back up there.
Over on the side door I’ve got Peter Burlap Tail. Mother made him a few years ago and I still adore him. My shamrock’s from St. Patrick’s Day have now been planted in the pot by the side door, along with some other white flower that I don’t know the name of (but know it usually does pretty good in my pots.)
I’ve got a bunch more pots to plant today so I suppose it’s time to get crackin.
