I've always wanted to have a window box of flowers. Dreams really do come true! This one is right outside my kitchen sink window with a humming bird feeder hanging just above. Such a joy to look out that window! I just have to avoid looking down...into the sink full of dirty dishes. :)
We planted this "Show-off" rosebush last year and it did so well (AKA: it survived the chickens and the summer of 2011) that we planted another. Love them!
I've seen all the creative cutting and painting of tires to make planters. I guess this is the lazy version, but I still think it is pretty!
It's been fun planting things around the house. The extreme heat hasn't come yet, so we're still going outside to water. Maybe I will do better with tending all of this than in years past.
