Planting Flowers for Curb Appeal

Jump to recipe!

Partly because of the weather, but mostly because we have been super busy, I’m just now getting my flowers planted. Last weekend, before heading to the baseball tournament, Doug and I finally got most of the flowers planted in front of the house.

Last year, Doug painted the porch, trim, window boxes and did lots of landscaping. So, this year, we just planted some flowers.

We decided to keep the window boxes pretty simple, and bought 3 flats of pink impatiens and some sweet potato vine. I just loved the zinnias, and had Doug plant them in my antique watering cans. Although, after they were planted, I’m not really crazy about them, so I think I need to make another trip to the nursery for more flowers.

Do you remember my little wagon I shared last year? I added pink petunias, a couple million bells in yellow and filled in with some extra impatiens we had left from the window boxes.

The firecrackers are my favorite 4th of July Decoration I have. I usually display them in a group, but kind of like them on the steps this year.

What do you think about the zinnias in the watering cans? Keep them…or re-plant?

Gratitude Journal: I’m thankful to be able to live in a home where we can plant flowers and enjoy our beautiful home.

  1. The zinnias are too tall for the watering can, I agree something more flowing would look nice. Your home is very beautiful, I have flowers everywhere in windowboxes, hanging baskets, boxes and pots on my front porch, back porch, everywhere

  2. Your home look so welcoming! I like the zinnias, but you could move them … a good excuse to go back to the nursery!

  3. The house is beautiful & the zinnias are perfect in the watering can!

  4. Love the cans and the flowers…… just not together. I see something that is more spilling over the side. Love the firecrackers! Your home has a very welcome and inviting feel to it!

  5. Really it is a beautiful house! Personally, I would keep the zinnias there.


  6. I loved my window boxes on my old house. I miss them! Love the flags up the walkway.
