Hanging Baskets on the Porch
Remember the ten things I had to do before I did the one thing I wanted to do? Yes, well, hanging baskets on the porch was that one thing. Finally, I got to do it.
So, why, I hear you asking, are they empty? Isn't the point of having hanging baskets in order to plant flowers in them and make the house pretty? Oh, sure, and they will be pretty....eventually.
You see, I planted seeds and they seem to be taking their sweet time germinating.
Just to remind myself I stuck the empty seed packet between the wires in the hope I will know what I'm look for in this planter.
Of course, none of those look like Impatiens. That's because I also planted some Morning Glories...see the one with the heart shaped leaves next to the chain? Yep, that's a Morning Glory vine, YAY! The others? Well, I'm thinking they are weeds...just not certain.
I did plant other seeds in the baskets...just don't recall what they are. I know, it's quite pathetic of me. I should be able to remember at least that. Alas, no. But at least this way I'm in a perpetual state of surprise.
Whatever grows in these hanging baskets at least they'll have a pretty view from the porch.
