The outside of a home is so important.
It is what you base first impressions on.
Usually if the outside of a home is not kept up, the inside is not either.
That is why I think it is so important to have an inviting entry area.
I love having a wreath, an inviting doormat and flowers on my porch. I would even have a bench if there was enough room.
I keep adding things to the area. I added this beautiful Zinia last week.
Here is a close-up of our doormat...just because I think it is pretty.
And here is my new plant stand complete with mums and an aster. The mums and aster will be repotted eventually.
I wonder what Russ would think if I painted the front door teal???
