Spring at the Cottage is something to see, nature puts on a show like only it can. The daffodils are the first to poke their heads above the ground soon the plumbs and peaches follow in dazzling white and pink blossoms. The Bradford pears show up next not to be left out, then the pear trees and finally the cherry trees. It’s a show to be seen, I love watching it every spring. It never ceases to surprise me as I look out the window every morning and the view has changed.
The front porch is the first thing people see, so we wanted it to be warm and inviting and perhaps hint a little of what’s to be found inside.
Around the door is the same grapevine garland base that you saw on our Christmas Tour
but redecorated for spring with some pretty florals and greenery. The wreath is a basket we picked up from Hobby Lobby several years ago and filled with pink tulips and moss.
We repurposed some garden decor to the side of the door, paring it with a bucket filled with miniature rose plants and a bunny.
The bench is a yard sale find that we just couldn’t live without! We added a chunky blanket and some pillows from our SHOP
On the other side of the door is this adorable wagon turned flower cart loaded to the brim with hydrangeas, roses, and tulips. We added a some galvanized buckets and black and white crocks to the mix.
