The art of the hanging basket
When you want to cheer up your balcony, dull wall or other bleak parts in your garden, a hanging basket is just the thing. You can fill them with all kind of summer plants like lobelias, pelargoniums, petunia's, fuchsia's and nasturtiums. When they are well planted, get enough food and water, they will look great throughout the summer.
While on holiday in England I was amazed by the colourful hanging baskets, near front doors, pubs and even public buildings. One more beautiful than the other. I think the British have elevated the hanging basket to an art form!
In stead of writing the names of plants and colour combinations down in my notebook, I took some photos, which I love to share with you. I don't think my hanging basket will ever look as pretty as one of these, but I can try :-)!
Wish you a all a happy weekend!
Lieve groet, Madelief
