Ok, I am so jealous of you folks who have living things in your planters, where the grass is green & stuff is flowering! The only green in my hood are the evergreens, some still with 'snow' on them! (don't get me wrong.... I'm actually extremely grateful to live in a rural area & wake up in nature everyday!) But if you're experiencing spring right now....what a blessing. I can't put anything outside until the last risk of frost....late May/early June. So I hang my little wreath of fake flowers & Easter eggs on my front door.....against the snowy backdrop.....come back to Houzz & drool over the shots of spring. Thanks for the great ideas though!

Actually, the only outside photos seem to be in the original photos and not the posts, peony. We had a warmer than usual winter here and then a cold freeze late and daffodils weren’t affected but slowed down the other Spring flowers. Our cherry tree has just come out and a crab apple and there are forsythias and Bradford pears around the neighborhood. We have deer everywhere so they like to keep shrubs pruned. I had to put silk tulips on the front porch. Still cold off and on so no palms yet on the porch. I will post the cherry tree for you. We have had a ton of rain this year too. Can’t get things done in my beds for the mud! I wonder why so few posts on the site. Would love to see more decor!

Love all of these beautiful plantings of spring… I especially love the hanging birdcage turned planter. I have an old birdcage & I’m definitely going to try that one!
