I know I'm late for Five on Friday, but I figured I still join in anyway. I wanted to share some pretty flower moments from some of my flowers last summer. It's fun to look at them and dream on my flowers for this summer!
I always have 2 big hanging baskets on the deck in the back of the house. Last year I went for these bright multi-colored petunias.
Annie & I always like to have some fairy planters around too! This one was in the front of my house, but Annie always has a few in her fairy garden too.
Last year I found this weathered cathedral looking window pane holder and filled it with Martha Washington petunias. They started out on my kitchen counter, but eventually went outside where they could get more sunshine. Love the rustic look with the pretty flowers.
I have 2 big pots like this that flank each side of the main door we use to get in & out of our house (not our front door) and it would take so much dirt to fill them so I use a little trick to make them look nice & full in an easier way. I take 2 big hanging baskets (petunias again here, but in purple) and I cut off the hangers and set them onto the rim of the pot. All done - easy peasy!
These are flowers I planted at my Mom's place last summer. Planting flowers has never been her "thing" as much as mine, but she loves looking at them and tending them. So I helped her pick out some flowers and planted them for her. She had an old book case & we thought it would be cute up against her garage filled with pots of flowers and her garden items. She also has the cutest wicker hanging basket on her garage window and I filled that with vines and different flowers and it just grew and draped more and more all summer. So pretty and she just loved it!
Besides all the petunias you saw at my house I also like to plant begonias and impatiens in the front of my house that's more sheltered and shady. I also usually plant some geraniums and pansies in Annie's sunny garden. I like to have a fuschia basket in my wishing well too. I'm getting excited for what I'll find and plant this year!! Happy weekend to All!
I'm linking with Amy at Love Made My Home for five on friday. Sending you my thoughts and hugs and prayers too Amy!!
