I've hung up my dress-for-success clothes, and pulled my domestic "genes" out of storage.

A Hanging Flower Basket For All Seasons



Hanging Flower Basket - Fill with impatiens and creeping Jenny - So pretty! | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

Have you ever fallen in love with a flower pot?
Of course you haven't...that would be just nutty.  
I mean, who would do that?
 The neighbors would talk, for heaven's sake,
if they saw you whispering sweet nothings to your Sweet William, wouldn't they? 
But, between you and me, I can't seem to walk by 
the hanging flower basket in my front yard 
without my heart doing a little flutter.

Truth be told, my love affair with this simple baske
has been blossoming for awhile now.   
It began one fall, when my basket was heaped with gourds and mini-pumpkins.

My heart grew even fonder, when it was filled with colorful fall leaves.

In spring, daffodils and pansies
proved to be a match made in heaven, and I was even more smitten.

And now, this summer, I'm enamored with the combo of impatiens and creeping Jenny.
Don't they make a lovely couple?

So, yeah, I admit it. I've got a thing for my hanging flower basket.

I guess I've always been a bit of a basket case.

  1. Ha ha, yes, I guess you are! Looks great, though - aren't you glad Impatiens are back? For a few years they all had that horrible fungus....I missed them!

  3. Amy, What a great idea to change the contents of the hanging basket with every season. Love it! Joan-My Cookie Clinic

  4. I didn't know impatiens weren't around?! Learn something new every day.

    I feel that way about my deck planters. One in particular is doing so well, it makes me smile whenever I see it, which just happens to be ten times a day :)

    Great idea to switch things up. I tried to find some creeping Jenny but learned it is invasive so most places don't carry it. I suppose in a basket that is a non issue, but I went with million bells and they look great.

    Have a great weekend Amy!

  5. It's very pretty! I don't ever seem to have hanging baskets. It gets too hot here and they don't last long.

  13. What a kick of a post! I think I must be a basket case too as I just can't get enough of one when I have one. Haven't had any for a few years as am living now in a pretty hot climate and they seem to dry out really fast, even if watered twice a day. So I'll continue to dream for awhile. I love how you changed it up with each season. Never thought of that!

    Love your sweet basket in all seasons. xo Diana

  19. I totally get your love attraction to your basket! I have some garden things like that too!

  20. Well, who would have thought that all those pretty petals would have paved the path to the perfect punchline?!

    Your 'illicit' love affair is more than justified!
