With the cold temperatures finally arriving, our yard/exterior has been looking pretty pitiful. Well, even more pitiful than usual. We aren’t much for landscaping around here.

Evidence of that are our hanging baskets that have been empty all year.

So when I spotted (2) hanging baskets of pansies on clearance at Wal-mart for $5, I just couldn’t pass them up. Sure they won’t last long since I’m sure full fledge winter is right around the corner but heck, they were $5! So a quick and cheap little makeover for the weekend brought a little life to the front of our house.

Doesn’t it just brighten your mood to see a little color during the bleaker months of the year?
