Years and years ago, I used to think that flowers came in the pots that they were supposed to be planted in. For real. Like seriously. I really did think you planted flowers in the plastic thingys they came in. And, coming from a family of big time green thumbs is a little bit of a shock. My Grandma June was a huge gardener, she had the most beautiful flowers and plants in her yard. And then my Mom, same way as her Mom. She has a knack for planting. And sad to say, that knack didn't get passed on to me. But, I am learning and taking baby steps!
So anyways, this planter was so much fun to do! And little did I know, I picked the right type of mix to go together.
The pink and purple flowers are inpatiens, and the white flowers in the middle are begonias. These guys like shade, so our front porch is the perfect place for them.
