RMN 4 - Valentines Welcome to Our Back Door Guests

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

The back patio of our home looks so bare in the winter 
without the lush green ferns and beautiful flowering plants of summer.

To make it seem a little more welcoming to our back door guests, a seasonal Valentines flag, pineapple door hanging, and pots of pansies were added.

The pansies were found at Lowe's, off of the Clearance Rack for $2-$4 a 8" pot.  I purchased many pots and placed them in the empty planters here and there around the patio.  There are two urns, one on each side of the double back doors, now filled with pansies.  

The cute flag also came from Lowe's.

The wood pineapple wall hanging was found at our local garden center, hand-painted with all weather paint.
I added the bows to the pineapple and flag holder.

I {heart} pansies, they are so delicate and dainty, yet deceitfully strong and hardy!

Nature has begun it's own welcoming, 
with daffodils popping up in beautiful blooms of yellow across the yard!

One more Refreshing My Nest Project complete ...refreshing the back patio!

  4. I love your pretty back entry! Great job Rhonda. Wow, I've missed a lot. Your upholstry work is fabulous! You got a great deal on your planter and fixed it perfectly. Your wreathes are gorgeous. Nice work! I heard through Cindy's blog that maybe I should be careful on Pinterest. I am going to make some changes. I hate to go private, but sometimes I wonder that I should. Enjoy your week.

  5. I love the color and the spark of life it brings to the back door. I have a saying by my back door that says "back door friends are best" and at our house the back/side door is the door that friends come in. We just see brown all around right now (grass, trees, thawing dirt, etc.)and I'm anxious for the colors of spring so thanks for bringing it in my home via your blog!

  6. Love the pineapple...boy, you are on a roll....everything is looking beautiful!
