Do you remember the wall planter I created last summer for my hens and chicks? Well, it hung outside on the wall all winter long, and I am happy to report – she survived!
A few weeks ago when it warmed up a bit, I took the planter off the wall and gave it a really good soaking with the hose. The plants were looking a little brown and sad at the time, but in a few short days they really came back to life. There is so much new growth. Those mama hens had a lot of little chicks over the winter. From what I understand, these suckers are pretty hardy and can survive most conditions. I give them credit because I barely survived this past winter.
Anyway, remember what it looked like when I first started?
And now. What a difference!
After I give the porch a good scrubbing, I’m going to get these shelves dressed for the season! Bring on the sunshine, Mother Nature!
How did your plants survive the winter? What are your plans for sprucing up your porch decor for the warm months ahead?
