Styling, Yall {Porch Ferns}

Summer. The time of year for lightening bugs (fireflies) and swimming pools. One of the things I miss about my mama's front porch is the hanging ferns she keeps around its perimeter. Six on each side. Always hung above the hand railing and below the awning, perfectly visible from the road. The bright green against the stark white painted porch is welcome contrast. Very southern.

This collection represents both the geometry and the graceful curves of the fern plant. No. 4 earrings mimic the actual natural pattern of ferns. Jill Morzillo's earrings capture the fern in a different way: a curly fiddle head fern shape with the perfect color green gem.

What plants do you keep on your front porch or planters this time of year?

  1. Love this post! :)

    Currently, I have two mint plants on my porch (chocolate mint and Kentucky Coronel), a Zinnia, daisies, a "hen and chicken" plant and various other flowers.

  2. I'm googling chocolate mint, that sounds fun to have! I've had a hen and chicken plant before too, they are sturdy little plants!
