~Outside Summer Entry~







 I figured I better show you how our front stoop looks before it gets changed up for the fall...which by the way I don't do until the end of September.
I decided on leaving the door plain after I had to fix it from the damage my magnetic hook left :( good thing I still had some paint left! I also bought a new rug from Ballards, it's similar to the one I had there before.
 
 I just bought this two tiered planter at a local nursery for $30. I thought that was a steal considering it's size.
  I know the fern is called asparagus fern but I can't remember the name of the other plant. I love how it cascades over the sides.
My concrete bunny is sitting just waiting to greet you :)
 I added more of the asparagus fern to my concrete urn.

 Thanks for stopping by! Have a super weekend!

It looks great, Martina. That trailing plant looks kind of like "snow-on-the-mountain" but I always thought it was a ground plant. I love the planter AND the rug AND the bunny. Okay- that's it- I love it all! xo Diana

Very welcoming, Martina. I love that concrete urn.

Martina, your planter is so pretty. With all of this heat, I am ready to move on to a fall porch. Everything here is fried! Lol!

Great price on the plant stand, and it's a nice size and shape. Asparagas fern is a good doer for me, but I've forgotten to get it the last couple of years. I'm trying to think what the other plant is. It looks a little like Cuban oregano. Does it have a fragrance?

Anne said...

That looks wonderful!! I so need to work on my front entry - on the outside of the house that is!

Have a happy weekend xox

Your stoop is looking good Martina. Fall will be here before we know it.

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

I love the plants, especially the asparagus fern. Never heard of it before, but I like the look.

Pamela Bolton said...

The planter looks terrific by your front door. Love the new rug too. I think that the trailer is varigated Swedish ivy. It's a really good choice to plant with asparagus fern.

Ron said...

Glad you are back! Your plants in the planter are so lush and beautiful. Good deal. xo

Cynthia said...

Very beautiful Martina, I can't wait to see what you have planned for the Fall season. It will be here before you know it!

All of your greens still look pretty. I got home from vacation and mine are all "stemy" and ugly. Soon I will fill my pots with mums...I guess. Hope you have had a way fun summer.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/From Harvest To Table said...

Your summer entry looks great! Very fresh and welcoming.

Shelia Williamson said...

HI Martina! Your planter is very nice and I like your plants. Looks like they love it too. The rug looks really pretty with your bricks. So glad to have you back.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Lovely welcoming entry. Can't wait to see the fall version.

Angela Ryder said...

Martina, I love the color of your door! Would you happen to know the color name? Everything is beautiful!~~Angela

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I think it looks really nice. I am curious to the name or the vine you have draped across the front doorway. Is it a grapevine? Where did you find that?

Pamela said...

Your porch looks wonderful Martina. I think I have the exact rug in our living room but in a different color story.

Anne said...

So beautiful and welcoming Martina!

Your entry looks beautiful and very welcoming. Very pretty planter too.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Looks great Martina! The rug is perfect too. I may have to check those out because I need a new one!

Calypso In The Country said...

Your home looks very inviting...you are reminding me I have to spruce up my neglected front porch!

Your two tiered planter is lovely by the door Martina.

Elizabeth BlueClearSky said...

That is a very welcoming entry, Martina. We are currently updating ours but it won't be finished for a bit. We added a new bright white garage door and now all the trim needs to be painted and I'm waiting for one of my brothers to install a new man door into the garage.

White Weathered Hutch, said...

Wish I could find good deals like that. Love how your front is very welcoming! Yes it won't be long and we will be decorating for the fall.

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Beautiful entry Martina! Love your new rug and planter. I LOVE asparagus fern and use it often in my pots, I actually winterize most of it because it is so big by the end of summer that I don't want to have to start over next year. I bring my pots inside, by a filtered light window and water just a bit over the winter...then put them back out as soon as the last threat of frost.
Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday, hope you'll hop back over...
Blessings,
Cindy
