Ever since I was a little girl I always loved the idea of flowers in the kitchen window, in particular brilliant red geraniums.
Referring back to my love of vintage (doesn't vintage sound better than old?) t.v. shows like Bewitched and the Waltons. Samantha always had the bright red geraniums in her kitchen window while Olivia Walton had a softer white flower on her sill.
But for the last ten years my kitchen windows have always had a lot of shade due to the beautiful maple that once stood about 25 feet from the back of our house. And since we had the shade I've always used impatiens, which I do love, in the boxes off of the kitchen windows. Well thanks to Super Storm Sandy last fall, I now have an abundance of afternoon light which will be pouring in through our kitchen windows this spring and summer, most of it being the stronger afternoon sun that I know geraniums love. So today I was on Pinterest and started pinning different ideas of geraniums in and around the house...here is some of what I pinned.
This final pic is from the Designer House Tour last spring in Bucks County Pennsylvania. Click here for the complete garden tour.
Aren't these all amazing ideas? Geraniums are simply a classic as far as I am concerned.
Although I am going to seriously miss my beautiful trees in the back, I am kind of excited about new flowers in my boxes!
(Maybe even some new window boxes too.)
Have a great day!
Feel free to re-pin these pics from my board but not from here, I wouldn't want the owners of these photos not to receive proper credit. Just click here to re-pin.
