When my sister was visiting last week, we went shopping for flowers. I found a beautiful lavender pink geranium. I wanted to place it on the front porch, but needed to find an appropriate stand.
I didn't have to look far since I have the two porch posts that Mr. Thrifty built for me a few years back.
Adding one of Grandma's crocheted doilies to the top of the post gave it a bit of romance.
Last summer, I picked up a willow bicycle basket at an estate sale. This item would be perfect to hold the majestic pink geranium.
The back of the basket.
I will enjoy the blooms all summer.
The week before, I planted the French blue chair with various annual flowers. As the summer begins, I hope that this basket will overflow with colorful blooms.
The winter pansies are doing very well right now. I added some hot pink vinca and verbena to the mix. Once the heat comes, I will need to plant some pink and purple annuals, but for right now, I will enjoy the view.
