fairy garden

I ordered six 30″ Arch Decora Cages with Galvanized Bronze liners. They are a beautiful addition to my townhome. I have enjoyed planting flowers in them year round. I love looking at the flowers from both inside and outside of the house! They are planted here with red geraniums, Red verbabam wgute benesua and white calibrachia.

Window Box Oasis

My window boxes are my favorite hobby. I have decorated my deck railing with wrought iron window boxes to create a garden oasis. I love planting pansies in the fall for a splash of color. I use varigated plants for contrast. I live in North Carolina.

Mix It Up

My window box was purchased at Hooks and Lattice. It is a metal 30″ Falling Water Window Box cage [with a coconut coir liner]. Originally I had three of these window boxes on the front of my house but added two more because they really added to the house’s curb appeal, were affordable, unique and easy to put up. Each year my mom and I try different plants in the boxes. This year we used a variety of different plants to display different textures and colors hoping to obtain an original eclectic look that engages viewers.

How to Hide an Ugly Pool….Before and After.

When we built a wall to hide our above ground pool, it needed something to give it a personality. To the rescue, window boxes! Our six metal boxes are 36 inches wide and hold a mix of impatiens, vinca vine and spiky plants. In the fall we like to mix it up with some colorful mums and pumpkins. I am embarrassed to say we found our window boxes on a curbside ready for the garbage man! Why someone was throwing them away, I’ll never know, I’m just glad they did! Now can someone help us figure out how to hide our ugly air conditioning unit? :0)
