adding a little outdoor color

last summer our house got a fresh coat of paint and since i knew that it was going  to under go massive amounts of pressure washing i didn't even bother planting anything for fear they would get damaged. however, this year i was definitely itching to get a few new things planted to help welcome spring and add a little character to the sorely lacking curb appeal.

instead of purchasing new planters i decided to improvise with a few masonry ones that i already had.  they just needed a little tlc and maybe a few coats of oil rubbed bronze spray paint to bring them back to life.    

once the pots were dry i made a little trip to the local nursery and picked up a few things that fit within my landscape color palette and would grow great in our very shaded yard.  it has been a few weeks since they were planted and i'm just amazed at how a few flowers and some newly made over planters could make such a difference to our home's appearance! 

until tomorrow,
