Frogging and Gardening

I did not stitch the beehive in the correct alignment with border. But after careful study I found that I can frog the top of the border and lower it and all will be good - whew!

So let's move on to gardening where I've not seen any signs of frogs.  It's time for the Tuesday Garden Party and Maple Hill Blog Hop.  Are you ready?

This week I am sharing my Front Porch garden efforts.
The east side of the porch is the long side.  

I have several begonias on each side of the steps.

The chairs and the stool are Ikea kids' products.
I bought four plastic end tables in different colors this year. 

One is dark sage, another a bright pink. I had some white wooden tables, but what with watering plants the wood warped and the paint chipped and bubbled.  With plastic no worries!

I have a Passion vine, I'll be interested to see if it blooms.

Lots and lots and lots of fuchsias.

The west side of the porch is the short side.

It is home to most of my ferns and hostas - I think I counted 31 hostas and 16 ferns.

With all our uber-hot days of late, I find a vignette of green to be cool and refreshing.

White plastic table with blue pots.

Blue table and pots.

As June turns into July I am enjoying fragrant sweetpeas, and lots of begonia and fuchsia blossoms. I hope you are enjoying summer in all its glory.

Ripping out stitches is the worst thing to be doing Beth, at least you noticed and are able to do something about it. I can't believe that tomorrow takes us into July.

My goodness, how do you water all those plants? I have three on my side porch and am always forgetting to water....Thank goodness most of my plants are in the garden. I do have a few at end of path but that is right next to hose and at least get some rain. That being said your porch is beautiful!

Good for you in finding the error and not tossing the piece! I almost tossed my piece last night... still on the fence about this particular one... Lovely pot garden, as always! Hugs!
