Portulacas on the Porch

Here's the entry porch to the Ark, festooned with festive hanging pots of portulacas.  Last year I used gazanias for this application, but they had trouble withstanding the harsh exposure to the hot afternoon sun.  So I figured that portulacas, with their fleshy leaves, would be less likely to dry out.  This is another experiment that turned out well; it's always refreshing to encounter such a situation.  At the bottom of the porch I've mounted little solar lights that were on sale for $1.50 each.  No more stumbling up the stairs in the dark!
