Fall Window Box Makeover For Free
Updated: Feb 22, 2019
While driving around this morning I was so inspired by the beautiful foliage on the trees. Reminded me of the
Dolly Parton Song "Gods Coloring Book".
When I arrived back home this afternoon I noticed my window boxes needed some attention. Knowing that most likely within a week we would have a hard freeze buying flowers was obviously not an option. So I decided to give them a nice little late fall update... and did it for free with branch clippings from trees around our farm a few dried gourds and some dried hydrangea blooms I snipped form my bushes around the house. I think it looks great and most of all it was FREE. This window is on our B&B suite so our guests will really enjoy looking out and seeing this from their room.
Before and After. If you do not have window boxes on your house... you could do this with any container on your porch!
God's Coloring Book By: Dolly Parton
Today as I was walking In the fields just down the way I sat down on a fallen log To pass the time away And as I looked around me The more that I did look the more I realize that I am viewing God's coloring book I saw a golden ray of sunlight A silver drop of dew A soft, white floating cloud Sailing cross the sky 'a blue A yellow dandelion Pretty evergreen And some red and orange flowers Growing wild along the stream And the more I look around me And the more that I do look The more I realize that I am viewing God's coloring book The greyness in an old man's hair The pink in baby's cheeks The blackness in a stormy sky The brown in fallen leaves And the multicolored rainbow Stretched out across the sky And the purple haze at sunset Just before the night
And the more I look around me And the more that I do look The more I realize that I am viewing God's coloring book
