Remember last June when I said it was time for Summer? Well I quickly headed out to find the ingredients for this Summer's window boxes, and couldn't be happier with my choices. A few years ago I tried to stick to black, some yellow, and chartreuse. Last year I experimented with more colors based on what I found on sale. This year I just grabbed what I liked. The yellow petunias were the most expensive petunias I've ever bought (but they have this delicate stripe that, well, you won't see in any of the pictures), but I don't care.
|Glancing over from my desk is now always a pleasure.|
|A view from above. They are filling in and spilling out wonderfully, although one of the sweet potato vines is growing towards the window rather than trailing downward.|
|Glancing down at the other box. I love when they grow in enough that they can be seen from the street. Such a wonderful, bright jumble of colors.|
