Ever since we moved into our house three years ago, I have wanted to have colorful flower window boxes. There are two windows in the front of our house that are perfect candidate for a vibrant splash. And in my grand tradition of trying something on before buying (and because I am a control freak and like to know exactly what I am getting into), I digitally built flower boxes to see what color to paint the box, what flowers to get and what colors would look best.
Here I painted the box the same Warm Stone color as our house. I think it blends in too much and is a little boring.
And the winner is ...
Today I want out and, with the help of my daughter, chose pink and red Petunias, waterfall azure mist Lobelia, and I hope to find some hearty sea grass to plant as well. My husband has already started to build the boxes and I can start planting right away.
Ah, I love it when a plan comes together!
