Blooming July Blossoms

Window box is 36 inches in length. Hangs on deck rails. Glorious Petunias, Super Petunias and French Vanilla Marigolds. Bought plants from Russell’s in Wayland, MA and planted by yours truly every year!!

 

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.

Philadelphia Pride

My window boxes are made of wood. They are 36 1/2 inches long, 10 in. high and 12 in. deep. My son made these and I stained them the very dark red. I started with window boxes several years ago because it makes the house stand out and now my neighbors are doing the same thing with planters and boxes. I have tried other plants but I just love the way impatients look in them

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)

Summer Explosion

I purchased my window box several years ago online to add charm to the front of my home.  It measures 48″ long by 10 1/2″ high and 9 1/2″ wide.  Every year I try new combinations of flowers and greenery with different colors and textures.  This year I planted impatients and licorice plants with some polka-dot plants as accents. This year it grew beautifully and I am so very proud!
