The Front Porch Revisited ~ Spring Re-Do ~ Part 1

After a semi-neglectful early winter, the plants on the front porch are now responding to the lengthening days and increased warmth. Succulents are emerging from dormancy as their fleshy parts start to plump up and flowers begin to develop. The late winter sun brings out intense colors on many of the plants that are receiving longer hours of more direct light. I water regularly now and feed lightly, watching the weather to make sure that I avoid soaking the plants right before we get several cloudy, damp days in a row. The kiss of death for many of the xeriscape persuasion.

 I recently had the good luck of acquiring some wood & wire shelves to help house and support my collection. Two units of shelving went on the porch and a third will help organize and display items out on the brick patio. Things look great on the porch, with the new shelves being taller yet narrower than the furniture it replaced. I have more space to walk and view up close the almost daily changes as the plants go into full spring mode. Good times!
