Happy Friday friends, are you excited about the long weekend ? This week I was in the mood to decorate my porch with some red, white, and blue in honor of Memorial Day, and also in anticipation of our Fourth of July barbeque.
I found some inexpensive fabrics and stitched up some festive pillow covers, then I filled my pots with annuals in patriotic colors. This summer, I’m having some fun with punches of red on the front porch !
Red dianthus, white nemesia, and blue hydrangea . . .
Red dahlias, white dianthus, and blue lobelia . . .
Red petunias, white geraniums and blue lobelia . . .
More red petunias . . .
Red trailing calibrachoa . . .
Blue salvia, red kalanchoe and white dusty miller . . .
I love these red linen and blue ticking stripe pillow covers !
In the blue pot, I planted red gerber daisies and more white dianthus.
So puurrty . . .
so patriotic . . .
Three cheers for the red, white, and blue !
And thank you to the men and women who have served and sacrificed to protect and defend our country. This weekend, we remember you.
I wish you all a very relaxing Memorial Day holiday !
