Last March, after a long Winter and a few months in our new home, I decided to add some simple flower boxes to our front porch railing. They were an easy project with a lovely return and also a great way to make the house feel a bit more homey.
But as it happens year after year, Spring turns to Summer and this year in particular I had a baby which meant that as of last week, my flower boxes looked like this.
As I am sure you can guess, I was SUPER ready for Fall to get here so I could get some new flowers. And even though our highs will be in the 80s all week, I am calling it. It’s flower time!
Using the same flower boxes, I just needed to get more dirt and some plants. I found a lovely assortment of red, yellow, purple and bronze mums for $1.25 each at Lowes. Those with the dirt were a grand total of $20! Not too bad for a total makeover.
Flower boxes are so ridiculously easy. I can’t stress it enough. Once I mounded some dirt, I just loosened the root balls of each plant and tucked them into their new homes. I couldn’t be more pleased!
Now all we need are a few pumpkins and we’ll be ready for Fall! Have you put any fall plants out yet? I would love to see your finished products!
