We have had absolutely stunning weather in Northern Virginia this week. Warm, sunny, a nice breeze. I worked from home today and it was brutal not being able to go play in my garden, and so the minute I was off the clock I headed out. I arranged my planter boxes last week and snapped a few pictures. They haven’t quite filled out yet, but I wanted to share photos in case you are looking for ideas. It is best to get them done soon so you can enjoy the spring flowers.
I used the modern concrete planters I bought at Target a couple of years ago and blogged about last fall. When I checked Target’s website just now, however they were out of stock, but here are some similar ones:
I love geraniums, and they are so easy to grow. I usually fill my planters with just those, but I decided to do a mix this year. So, I added one bright pink and one white geranium. The creeping jenny from last year was still going strong, so I kept a little of that but gave it a major haircut. A couple of the pansies also survived the freezing winter, so I left them as well. Lastly, I fell in love those superbells blue, or Calibrachoa, when I spied them at the garden center. They look like little petunias and they trail over the sides, making them perfect for planter arrangements. So to sum it up, I used: geraniums, pansies, creeping jenny, and superbells. Spring be sprung.
