I had planned to post about curbside clean-up tonight and my awesome finds (on the side of the road). You can read about my curbside finds here, here, and here. Unfortunately, Shelley and I found NOTHING. And, Steve was happy!
Instead, I thought I would show you a quick run-down of my front yard flowers, which are doing very good. I think the rain is keeping them healthy.
I actually do very little planting and most of my flowers come back each and every year. However, I fill my window boxes, pots, and rain barrel flower pots with plants. This year I went with mostly wave petunias and spikes throughout (there are a few others thrown in there as well).
|I actually took a tip from Young House Love and used hanging plants for my window boxes, because it created a more mature window box. It basically skipped a lot of waiting and was worth the minimal added cost.|
