Across the street



It's nice to have neighbors across the street who make their yard look pretty.  I think the combination of these flowers with the ferns hanging in the background on the front porch look particularly Southern.  I don't really like ferns, but they make me feel at home.  They remind me of my childhood.  Are ferns Southern or do people hang them on their front porches in other parts of the country?

Every porch fern is a childhood memory from the deep south.

I don't consider Florida to be a "southern" state but, everyone I knew while growing up there, had ferns on their front porches and lanais {which is a fancy word for screened in back porch}.
