Feeling the red, white and blue...

 Yesterday when we were at Lowes picking up some ant killer...yes...its ant season in my neck of the woods...they're everywhere...not in the house yet...we want to keep it that way...anyway...I spotted some red, white and blue Phlox...the miniature variety...so I got a couple pony packs for the yard and it inspired me to add a bit of red, white and blue to the front porch...as much as I could find hanging around anyway...
 I know the middle pot is green...but that plant loves it there...so I wasn't about to move it...this is a little table next to our bench...

 I got this at Joann's a couple years ago...
I made this a couple years ago...now I have a little different look to the front porch...I added a few more little signs near the front step...I just forgot to take pictures of them...I have a long sort of narrow covered front porch...it is sometimes hard to figure out what to put there...but I'm happy with the way it turned out...I have a lot of blue in my house...just not a lot of red...I like red...but blue is our favorite...we even have a blue car! 
Nice temperatures today...it was sort of cool in the morning...I went out in shorts to garden and had to add a sweatshirt...its cool again now...we have all the windows and doors open...there's a nice breeze blowing through...not much happening in my world...just gardening and sewing...working on a few custom bags and some new things for my Etsy shop...how are you enjoying Summer??
Until next time...enjoy the day!!

Your decorations and plants are so pretty! It sounds like you're having some nice weather. It's been rainy here and the high will be a balmy 61. I don't know if I should wear short or long sleeves!

Enjoy your weekend!

Very sweet decorations. I love the succulents. I've always wanted to grow them, but my porch doesnt face the right direction! How your cool weather lasts!

Everything looks very nice. I love succulents because they are so easy to grow.

My favorite time of the year to decorate. Last year we were near you at this time, so I wasn't home to do any. Seeing your Red, White, and Blue is inspiring me. When I get home next week, I'm going to dig out some of my decorations. Yours look so cute. Wish you would have given us a whole view of the porch. Hope you GOT your ants. We've had them too.
