Since I put out the flag today for the 4th of July I thought I would get a few shots of the front garden. I love the way a house looks with the flag hanging by the porch. I changed out the front plantings two years ago since there was no color in the yard when we moved in.
Since my birdbath doesn't hold water anymore I like to put annuals in it. The petunias have gotten pretty big in two weeks.
I wish that my clematis was in bloom on the light post right now. It already bloomed and is getting ready for more. I love my vine looking trellis that it grows on.
Up by the steps I didn't want to plant anything since it is close to the foundation. Instead I like to put containers with annuals. I bought these containers new for this year and planted the same annuals in them to match.
I am hoping that my house has good curb appeal for when we place it on the market. We are still looking for a new house. It seems like most of the houses coming on the market are townhomes. My hubby would like to have one but I am not ready for that yet. I still want a big yard so I can garden. I have always loved to garden and mow the yard. I am not sure where I got that from since neither one of my parents did gardening. My mom's version of gardening was her plastic geraniums that she kept in two crocks in the living room.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July!
