Our house is green, and we have a lot of "greenery" around the front of the house, so this is a great way to add some color. Stuart and I went to Home Depot after Christmas...we didn't find the best options (it is winter after all) for flowers but decided on some lovely purple and yellow pansies with a pop of cabbage. (I have been warned that the cabbage may smell at some point).
Here is an empty flower box that Stuart already hung for me. I love the iron.
Next, here are my tools....
|I added some plastic bags and cut holes in them to let the water through. |
I also added some leftover pine that I used around the house to decorate for Christmas.
Gardening trowel? check.
Here's my first box finished. And my mess...
Ta-da! Here is the finished product. Hopefully, the flowers will bloom more and add some more color.
Now for my next project...remember to water them :)
Thanks Mrs. D!
