A Bicycle built for four...

Hello everyone! I have been playing on my front porch again. With the Fourth of July coming up and my new bicycle planter I needed to update the porch again.



I just love this little bike planter built for four plants!  I still can't believe my sister gave it to me! I planted the three larger baskets with Double Inpatients.  This is first time I have tried my hand at them.  They are so pretty - looks almost like miniature  roses. In the smaller basket I planted some Creeping Jenny.



I bought the flowers on Friday and it rained all weekend, which knocked off most of the blooms.


I added some flags, star wands and the Dollar Store center piece to add some Fourth of July celebration to the porch.


What's more American then the flag and bicycles?!


The rest of the porch stayed pretty much the same except for some more flags.  Hope you enjoyed the new additions to the porch.  Thanks so much for stopping by, your comments really make my day.

Toni, I love the bike! Your porch looks great!! I had to go back and catch up on your posts. I was cleaning up some of my old blog posts and realized that yours was not showing up on my sidebar anymore. Well, I quickly went back and added you back in! All caught up now and looking forward to your new posts!!
