My favorite porch pot this summer is a trio of a new pink geranium, some ivy, and a strawberry. The strawberry, plucked from the wild ones that grow in the woods, sends out interesting runners.
The ivy is from last year. I brought it in for the winter and it just keeps growing. My mom loved pink, so pink geraniums make me think of her. And the green pot, well it was a Mother's Day gift from my daughter and her family.
