With Spring finally here, that means it'll soon be time for flowers. As I drive to work I see many of them starting to spring up all around. This also means that once again, I'll try my hand a flowers.
Flowers in pots that is.
I love the idea of having a porch that's covered with blossoming flower pots. It seems to make things much more bright and cheerful. Almost like they're welcoming you as make your way inside.
In all honesty though. I don't have a green thumb. I have a black one. They look great for a few weeks, but then it happens. They're either watered too much or not enough. However, I have yet to give up. Every spring I try it again, thinking it'll be different than the last year. We'll see how this year goes.
In the meantime, I've been making a cute flower pot. It's a twine-wrapped terra cotta pot.
Check out House by Hoff for great instructions on making this type of planter.
And yes, those are fake succulents. Perhaps this is what I'll have to stick with if the real deal doesn't work out for me.
Wish me luck!
