It's an Irishman's time of year.

Let the wearin o' the green begin. I after braving the elements to change around my front porch, removing all the evergreens and any sign of Christmas, I am preparing for the transitional time period of March.

It is tradition that I hang my Irish Flag on the first day of March, so it can't sit out there all needs some adornment.

Since real flowers are not even close to being ready to bloom, we are forced to use the faithful artificial greenery. I put together this boxwood wreath for my front door using artificial boxwood bushes, cut to individual lengths and inserted in to a floral form.

I loved the look but it needed a touch of my favorite inspiration color, citron green. I found when I was buying more florals and had to use a touch of it on the front door.

The reason I did this is because when I am ready to transition into April, I can add more of the whites and citron greens into the already existing arrangement, either on top of the wreath or as a complimentary wreath to put up next to the boxwood.

How many of you update your front door with the seasons? It is one of my favorite events of the day...I know that sounds sad, but I really like to say welcome!

Adoreable idea! I just love that. That is one of the neatest for St Paddy's day that I have seen in a long time.
