Good morning! How was your weekend? It was a little overcast around here, but pretty darn nice!
We drove across the mountains to visit with some family and found ourselves stopping in Highlands, NC to stretch our legs. It’s such a beautiful little town, and I was amazed by the gorgeous flowers all of the shops and hotels have on display. I thought I’d share a few pretty (iphone) pictures with you guys.
I’ve tried several times to create overflowing pots like those baskets above. I just love how full they are and how the plants trail so nicely. I don’t have much of a green thumb, and haven’t had great success.
The geraniums were just outrageous! So full and pretty.
Here’s another example of a gorgeous hanging basket.
You can see my attempt at a hanging basket in the top right of the photo below (along with some other piddly little pots and two monster ferns). I planted two of these baskets in the spring and they turned out better than any I’ve done before, but they were hardly show stoppers like those in Highlands.
I must do some research and start a little earlier next year. Do y’all have any tips for me?
