{Our White Pansies & Indian Hawthorn}

Alongside our driveway, we do have Fiberglass Window Boxes hanging on the retainer wall. Those are filled with White Pansies and the blooming Indian Hawthorn next to the wall is filling in with white blossoms as well.
The Indian Hawthorn to the left, we got as a gift from our German 'sons', in July of 1995.
Once a pot plant, it over the years has really grown up!
White Pansies in our Fiberglass Window Boxes alongside the driveway's retainer wall.
The blossoms of the Indian Hawthorn are an early spring pollen and nectar provider for the bees.

Do you have an Indian Hawthorn or White Pansies?

  9. Hello Mariette!
    I like your flower boxes and most - the flowers in them. I have never seen Indian Hawthorn in India... :) Pansies are here, but multi colored ones.
    Have a nice day!

    1. Dearest Anna,
      The Indian Hawthorn originated from South China so it is not necessary common in India. Oh, the multi colored pansies are here plenty as well but both of us love the white ones very much!
      Enjoy your week as well.

  10. Dearest Mariette,
    I love the way your boxes look with the white pansies.
    It's still pretty cool here, so no pansies yet. The daffodils out in the yard are finally budding, so there will be flowers....eventually.
    Have a great day.........*s*

  11. I love your window boxes and how it dresses up the wall. A great idea and place to showcase your flowers. Indian Hawthorn is a favorite of mine too. Beautiful header!

  12. You have green fingers, we say in Sweden when someone is so talented with flowers as you are !
    This morning I had to scrape the ice of the car window (carglass?), but now it's nice and warm out there.
    Hope you had a nice Easter!
    Warm greetings

  13. Liebe Mariette,
    ich habe weder weiße Stiefmütterchen noch indischen Weißdorn.
    Bei dir sehen beide Pflanzen einfach toll aus.
    Einen schönen Abend wünscht dir

  14. Dear Mariette,i like your window boxes and the white pancies!!Wonderful pictures of the white blossoms!
    It must be a joy in your garden!Wish you a lovely evening!Hugs!

  15. Your Indian Hawthorn is gorgeous! How amazing it grew so big from plant in pot!
    The white pansies are very cute. They look perfect for fiberglass window boxes and welcoming when you come home :-)

  16. Bellissimo il tuo biancospino!Bacioni cara Mariette!Rosetta

  17. Such a pretty scene, Mariette - all in white! The breezes must bring delightful scents your way. Hugs xo Karen

  18. Dearest Mariette;

  20. Mariette,the idea of the planters along the driveway is lovely. White pansies and hawthorn look so nice. I haven't got white ones yet but must get some soon.
