Ahhhhh....FERNS...

Happy Spring Friends - it has been slow getting here but I think it is here to stay....fingers crossed.  Even though it has been a tad early for flowers - I can hardly wait each year to hang my ferns - it is like INSTANT happiness. 
 
Nothing "warms" up a porch like greenery - and five ferns did the trick for our front porch.
 
 
 
Four hanging...
 
 
...and one sitting...
 
 
 
 
 
 
One even found it's way in to the sunroom - perched high on an old column.  It should thrive there with lots of great light.  It sure makes me smile each day.
 
 
Next up - FLOWERS!!!  They are finding their way into my window boxes next week - I. CAN. NOT. WAIT!!!!!
 
I wanted you all to take a peek over at Holly's blog - Down to Earth Style - she is amazing and her ideas never cease to amaze me.  It was ironic we both decided to post about our ferns but I learned a great trick when I stopped in for a visit with her.  We all struggle with hanging wreaths on our windows from time to time - you must hop over and check out her clever idea.
 
Happy Spring, Happy Planting, Happy Diggin' in the Dirt - just ...Happy Everything!!!!

I love ferns, too. I hung a couple over the weekend. And hopefully, flowers next week. Your ferns look very nice.

They are Lovely ... I love all kinds of ferns especially the Boston Fern. Sadly, they do not do well in the Mojave Desert. Your porch is very inviting and those ferns add a special touch.

Peace and Blessings,
