I’m going to depart from the commonly accepted saying this year and go with May Showers brings May Flowers. It has been SO super rainy this month, and this past week in particular. Oh, hello Elsa.
I’ve had my Bronwyn Hanahan flower pot door hanger out the past few weeks and love the whimsy and pop of color it brings to our entry. We’re pretty high up on a hill but my May flowers are easy to spot from the street. She just couldn’t stand it… being inside with me outside. And really, nothing good ever comes of her being left unattended :-) Trust me on that one.
The best part of all? They don’t even have to be watered or deadheaded or tended to at all! My kind of flowers.
My other dogs (like the door hanger, they also don’t have to be watered or tended to) are decked out in pink, lime and aqua ribbons for spring.
On the bright side of all this rain, everything in the yard is just as green as can be. (Let’s not discuss the huge patch of grass in the back that is just dead as a door nail.) Did y’all see my new ferns?! They are doing great again this year!!
At the friends entry I’ve got a darling and colorful bike with a basket full of flowers. I really want to pick up a few more seasonal door hangers for the side door. It’s the one used most often! I planted my St. Patrick’s Day shamrocks here and they are also doing wonderfully.
I’ve got a few other pots of actual May flowers going outside as well. I love to plant white annuals (they will last through fall) so that they “go” with my various holiday decorations from Independence Day to Halloween.
I hope you’ll hop over to see how a fabulous crew of my blogging friends are sharing their May Flowers today! Hmmm… my take on May Flowers stands out like a sore thumb, huh?!
Have a wonderful weekend!
