When Prince and I went to the Farmers Market downtown, I found this Fuchsia plant with the notation that it attached humming birds. So I put it outside the kitchen door awaiting the discovery of the hummingbirds which visit our upper porch.
Beside the Fuchsia plant sits the only remaining existence of the brain head cactus that a friend gave me from her huge plant. I cared for it the way she advised but after 2 winters, the third summer I brought the large part outside, it gave up the ghost. My SIL brought me the Box wood basil from Ms. and after I feed it, it has taken on a happier life.
These petunias sit on the right side and another multiple basket sits of the left of the bench and I love to sit near them in the morning drinking in their aroma as I sip my coffee.
My porch pots would not be complete without the usual geraniums. I have only 3 pots of them this year. I also love their fragrance.
I have 3 pots of this Brazilian Plant and think it adds to the corner near the steps. The kitty justice is that I have shown you some of my plants on the porch now it is your turn.
