Spring Front Porch

I recently added a few spring touches to my front porch.

Spring Front Door Decor - Door Hanging with Tulips
This look was originally meant for Easter but I think it works for the whole spring season.

Potted Plants for Spring
I bought two black urns from Home Depot and filled them with impatiens.  The spot seems to work well for them because they only get direct sunlight late in the day.  If you are looking for similar urns, mine is 15 inches wide by 21 inches high.  

Black Urn on front porch
I have wanted urns for the porch for awhile and I figure I can use them each season. (With my "green" thumb, plants don't last longer than that anyway!)

Impatiens for spring
 They have been blooming like crazy!

Spring Front Porch with Black UrnsSo that's my simple spring front porch. I might switch out the tulip door hanging for something a little bigger eventually but I think it works for now!

If you want to see more outdoor excitement around here,
check out the flowers on my back deck - Flowers on the Deck.

Have you freshened up your front door
for spring?
I would love for you follow along so you don't miss a post!

Linking to these parties:

  2. Your new urns are perfect with your front door and lamps. Very pretty!

  3. I really love those urns; I too would like a pair and might have to make another stop at Home Depot today! I'm also loving your black front door. I SOOO want to paint mine black but people seem to feel that since my door is solid wood I should avoid it. I'm curious, is your door wood?!?!?!
