Sprucing up the Front Porch

We're starting Operation Curb Appeal over here at our casa and so far so good.  Still trying to work with what little grass we have but in the mean time I've been adding some much needed flower power!

Here are the little lovelies I picked up at Lowe's.

The green plants are Dusty Miller and the flowers are Dianthus.  Both require full sun (6+hours) so I decided to plant them together. Keeping my fingers crossed they both do ok, turns out our front porch doesn't get as much sun as I thought. Bummer!

I also picked up these pretty flowers.  They are Alyssum and only need partial sun.  Aren't they cute?

So those are the plants we decided to go with this year and here's how they're looking.

The flower pots are all ones we've had from previous years.  I kind of like that aren't matchy, matchy.  Oh, and the chair was on sale at Lowe's for around $20...SCORE!

So that's how our front porch is looking, now if I could just get our darn grass to cooperate!
