Double Impatiens & Cline Cottage!

Hi Blogging Friends

Its that time of year when I plant my favorite annuals, Double Impatiens!  I always plant them right outside my door for instant beauty.  This was my first post last year if you would like to check it out.

This year I tucked some china plates in with the Impatiens and a couple of asparagus ferns.  My ivy died over the winter, what do you think?  Me and my Loving Man have been working hard painting the trim around my windows and door and I also painted my shutters, screen door and front door.  So this is a reveal for the old Cline Ranch, now turned "Cline Cottage"!  What a wonderful transformation and what a difference a coat of paint can do. I also painted the huge coffee pot which was free and cut some flowers from my perennial garden and added the "C".   A welcome arrangement for the transformed "Cline Cottage"!  So much beauty right outside my door.

Hope you love it as much as I do........



  1. I'd love to look out my door or come home and be greeted by lovely flowers like these. We have to wait for at least another 3 weeks before we set out any plants. Mother Nature likes to play fun and games here in Michigan!

  2. Looks beautiful I love it! I cant wait to own a house and do pretty things like this. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

  3. Gorgeous Debby! I love the double impatiens. Your porch looks gorgeous and I love the china plates! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  4. Your flowers are beautiful and I love your screen door!

  5. These are some of the best flowers for my front porch! Thanks for sharing at HSH!

  6. HOW GORGEOUS DEBBY!!! I just love, LOVE it all! And the little dishes in the pots are the perfect touch. I love the paint color too ~ you have such a sweet touch and truly a green thumb! So pretty sweet friend, xxoo

  7. How fun! I just painted our door and shutters too, and I can't believe how similar the color was. xoox

  8. Wow! Your double impatiens are beautiful. We have no shade at all so I can't grow them in our Texas heat. Love the way you've included a little plate in the pot. That's always been such a fun look. :)

    Happy Gardening girl!

  9. Such a pretty entrance - I would love having that but my full sun Florida home would kill them. Beautiful

  10. Double Impatients are one of mu favorite!! THey do so well on my front porch. I planted tuberose begonias this year and I am already regretting it. BEautiful!

  11. Pure and precious cottage charm and I adore your double impatients!
    They are beautiful, thriving and happy:)
    The saddest thing happened to mine. We had way too much rain about 3 weeks ago and then the grasshoppers arrived and between the 2 of those drastic elements mine are not only dead, they are gone!
    Thank you for joining us at the garden party.
