Window Boxes

by greenrabbitdesigns

I can’t believe it’s time to change the plants in the window boxes again! Time to get all the little pansies, violas and cylamen planted so that I have something pretty to look out at through the dark months.

It really seems no time since the summer bedding was in bloom in the same window boxes…..

…..and it definitely does not seem that long from I planted the primulas for the spring and blogged about it here.

Where has this year gone to ????

I always think pansies and violas look like little faces, so pretty. πŸ™‚ It’s just as well I got my gardening done yesterday as the weekend weather forecast doesn’t sound too good. Maybe they have got it wrong, let’s hope so!
Have a great weekend anyway whatever the weather !! πŸ™‚

Dear Viv,

This year has been quick but so much has been going on! Our summer was wonderful and longer than in years so I am happily (SORRY!) facing the autumn already. I am too lazy (I prefer busy but lazy it really is) to autumn-flower-thing, I only “plant” some heathers next to our front door. I admire your flowers so much! So beautiful pictures!

I am off to do some aunting soon, happy Friday!

Thanks Mia!
I think I must be gradually moving towards autumn, now that I’m doing my autumn/winter plants!
Enjoy your aunting and your weekend!:)

How pretty your planters look. Every year seems to go by more quickly than the last and it’s hard to remember when a month seemed a lifetime back when we were children isn’t it? Have a good weekend whatever the weather.

Thank you Jane!
Time goes so quickly, it’s unbelievable. Although even my kids who are in their twenties talk about time going quickly. I think it’s the pace of life now. Everyone is looking for the next thing rather than enjoying where they are at the minute. Sorry Jane I’ll get off my soapbox now!!
Have a great weekend! πŸ™‚

Your planters look lovely – it must be a very satisfying feeling when you get these seasonal jobs done on time. I still can’t admit that summer is over yet (although you’d think I ought to get the hint by the weather!)

Well to be honest I’m not really ready to let summer go yet either but things were looking a little jaded and it was nice to do it when the weather was pleasant!
Thanks for ‘visiting’ and have a lovely weekend. πŸ™‚

I’m holding out on our hanging baskets though I know I’m going to have to do something soon.

Have a lovely weekend,

Ooh lovely lovely. I adore violas and you have some gorgeous combinations here. I need a trip to the garden centre I think.

Although I’m not so keen on the changing season I do love to see these little flowers!

Hi Vivenne, your autumn (yes I have used the “a” word in full) window boxes look beautiful. I too love pansies and violas. I have bought some to plant up with my bulbs but at the moment we are holding onto summer here and most of my planters still wear their summer clothes!
It is very sunny here this morning and my lawn needs a hair cut. That will be my gardening job for the day! Hope you weekend turned out well.

Hi Jane!
We’re moving closer to autumn (there I said it too)but the weather here today is lovely although not a good forecast for later. Yesterday was warm, short sleeves weather, I just don’t feel that autumn chill yet!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and your grass cuting. πŸ™‚

Look at those cuties – love it! πŸ™‚

I think summer passed too fast, IΒ΄m really glad to be going to Washington DC next week so I get a little extra summer and warmth. πŸ™‚

Hi Tina,
I know the summer just flew by! Enjoy your Washington trip, at least that will make your summer last a little longer. πŸ™‚
