Many summer planters are looking a little tired right about now. I know mine sure are. It is still too hot for many fall annuals and there are slim pickings in the nurseries. I don’t know about you, but I want to stretch summer a bit longer and am not quite ready to switch my entrance and patio décor to full blown fall. My solution? Bring a little bit of fall to summer planters.
To freshen up my entrance’s potted hydrangeas, I pulled out tired trailing annuals and nestled in some mini white mums and some dried lotus seed pods. It’s not even September and I’ve bought a few mums! There is a hint of fall with the mums and dried pods but still a lot of summer in the green and white color scheme and the lingering hydrangeas. The curly willow branches compliment the dried lotus seed pods nicely. I switched out my summer wreath for a monogrammed basket of green apples and mums. To see how I made it, please click here.
