WINDOW BOXES FOR ME

I've been collecting window box pictures on Pinterest
all Winter for ideas and inspiration.
I know I should have a
killer,
spiller,
and filler.
 
 
 
 
This is how my boxes started this Spring.
Early last Fall I had added a few Mums
to my existing boxes and they made it
through the winter.
 
 
 
 
Here are my boxes today.
 
 
 
 
 
In the end, after so much looking and planning,
I just got some plants from the
 "drastically reduced"
section of Lowes.
$17 for the lot.
 
 
 
 
I'm learning that I can waste a lot of time
dreaming and searching.
 
 
 
 
When you are a girl on a budget,
sometimes you need to compromise
and go with what's available.
 
 
 

 
They still have some filling out to do,
but I think they'll work.
 
No regrets.
 
 
 
 
 
And the Mums should be pretty
this Fall.
 
Happy Gardening.

  1. Brilliant! I have always wanted window boxes. It is something I grew up with but you don't see that much anymore. You certainly have a way with plants and color. Bravo!

  5. I think your window boxes look fabulous! I think putting the mums in there is a great idea. I have one that came back in the pot I left it in and it made it through the winter totally neglected under snow. I'm going to give it a better home soon! Your window boxes will carry through the fall nicely!
