Mosaic Monday- Window Boxes


Window boxes are not planted as often as they should be.  The top right and bottom left are on the top level of a couple of two storey homes in my neighbourhood and a real pleasure to enjoy in the summer.  The bottom right is on the side window of a house in the country, eye-catching with the colourful orange flowers.  The last photo is actually a hanging planter on a white picket fence but is a perfect combination for a window box too.

  8. Love window boxes, but they are very cumbersome to care for!
    I usually do 2 boxes on my front porch on the windows there. It is shady so I plant impatiens. They usually do very well there!

  16. I do love window boxes, but living where I do at the beach ... the boxes rot quickly and need to be replaced often so folks here tend to put plants in pots or in the ground.
    Hugs and blessings,
