Ms. Trail has been lax on the job! lol.

Show us your porches and/or patios you have decorated for summer. If anyone does container gardens for flowers I'd love to see them. I'm going to do that next summer, but it will take all winter to figure it out.

My flower's are just now starting to grow because of the cold spring we had. This is one side of the front porch. Chalk art courtesy of my grand's.

I'll throw this picture in for good measure. My grandson doing what little 4 year old boys do.

Your porch is lovely, and what a beautiful photo of your grandson!

I am waiting on painters to finish an almost year long project. Well, it's been a year since we started. Then we had a winter break while waiting for pergola cedar to season. Once the painting is complete (hopefully by the end of the week) I will post my porch/patio photos here. Was planning on doing so in a separate post.

I have a hard time getting things to grow in the covered patio bc it's 20' deep. Any ideas?

pps, your patio is utterly beautiful! And I see a Badminton net in the background, the one sport other than baseball that I excel at! lol

A dear friend told me to use Ferns and some types of Begonia's for the areas that get no sun. I did and they're doing pretty good! I think the lighter leaf Begonia's are for shade, the darker ones for sun.

Impatiens are good as long as they get some good indirect light.
