cultiva[tion]

 
I started my Labor Day weekend by planting fall flowers in the boxes on our front stairs! Welcome September!! I was so excited for oranges & purples (hello football season!).

So this is what our flower boxes looked like before...


Trust me, they used to be beautiful (thanks to my friend Amelia), but after several summer getaways, the flowers haven't survived! Therefore I started with the desire for orange mums, which led to other plant selections, including peppers (the purple plant) and the yellow, weeping flower that will eventually drape over the edges of the boxes! Prior to planting...


And a few 'before & after' photos...


 We also bought some sweet potato vine hanging baskets! Goodbye ferns.

 

I'm loving the Fall colors (and the Clemson love)...

  

Here's a glimpse at what the porch is looking like these days...
