Lemons & Patriotic decor on the Summer Porch

I have been decorating the yard in a Patriotic theme for summer,   but I've added a twist to the front porch by adding lemons into the mix.

I started my porch decor by making a wreath for the front door.

I took a wreath that I made a couple of years ago and moved a few flowers around,   took out some flowers,  and added some Patriotic decor and a few lemon branches.

I have a fun farmhouse pickup hanging in the middle of my wreath.     I stuck a cluster of lemons on the tailgate to add a touch of whimsy......

I wove a blue ribbon with white stars thru my wreath.......

I tied a bow at the bottom of the wreath with the tails from my ribbon and then added a cluster of lemon branches.

Then,   I turned my attention to the wall to the right of the front door

I sat a Patriotic rooster on the top shelf along with a spray of flowers and a green vintage lemon juicer.   

 On the second shelf,    I put two striped pillows that my mother made over 20 years ago and another vintage juicer.   

 On the ground next to the cart is a olive bucket filled with field flowers and flags.

I've played with a few things on the piece of furniture on the other side of the front door,    but I'm not sure how much of that I really like so you may see some changes there next time I share the rest of the porch.

I hung a lemon Welcome sign next to the door and put an umbrella in the vintage ice cream freezer.

I hope I can finish my Patriotic porch by the 4th of!

I always enjoy your visits so much,    please come back soon!
