Vintage Victorian Metal Flower Stand

This weekend I had some good weather days so we were able to get out and wash the siding and clean off the front porch. So then I could begin planting some things in my vintage flower pots.

This is my vintage wire flower stand. I had wanted one for years but they were so expensive until I found this one!

This is the mess I had!  before now.............

after....aahhh all clean and planted.

home depot had a good sale on geraniums, so I decide to go with them. I have trouble getting things to grow here, no sun until late afternoon then it is so intense.

I am so happy when I find old trellis's, I love the look.

My kitty cat to watch over the porch!

This is one of my favorite McCoy pots, because of the rose design. I have the same one in pink.

Since it is almost Easter, here are 2 of my bunny planters.

I could show you my other trellis and outdoor front porch vignettes but I will save that for another week.

My wicker planter is in need of repair and my husband has not brought the ferns and geraniums home from storing them at his business over the winter yet. The geraniums are in planter boxes my mom had built for her mother on mothers day during WWII. They are filled with pink geraniums, I have hanging pink geraniums and ferns hanging around the wrap around porch. I sometimes wonder if people call my house the pink geranium house?

here is a preview

I so love your plant stand and adorable planters. I'd worry about putting the planters outside...but this is just adorable. Wish I had something similar for my patio. Happy VTT!

I have a hard time keeping flowers alive too. We live close to the beach and the salty air is not good for flowers. I love your planter and I think your house is divine with all the pink geraniums and other blooming flowers.
