What's the View from Your Porch Door?

Diffusing the view, Kimberly Queen, below.  Tolerates full baking sun or part shade, and she's not a shaggy mess unlike the Boston fern.

On perfect axis with the porch door, below, she diffuses the view in too.  Aka, double axis.

The lattice?  Regular, common, off the shelf, a disaster for any home but, in context, understandable here.  This home was rescued and is the Cultural Arts Center in Douglasville, Georgia.
Back to the lattice.  For pennies more special order panels with thicker wood slats, they look custom.

The fern stand is real, and almost a century old.  Been decades since it held a fern.  Pics taken earlier this month at the Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival in Douglasville, GA.

I need to trim last year's dead from the view from my front door! That fern is so nice and full, here it's a small fountain with the sound of water...still like an illusion, but a real one.

18 years ago that same plastic lattice was the (inexpensive) answer to our 1901 porch renovation. We framed the lattice and put eye-hook hangers so we can access under the porch. The still look great.

Moss! I haven't been able to figure out how to find a pot to fit my grandma's fern stand-- and just saw the answer. Now to find the right fern!
