window boxes

Hello, and Happy Saturday~~~
The window boxes are filling in nicely. They have a long way to go before they are actually spilling over..but with all this rain, they are getting a good start.

As you can see, the boxes don't match each other. I decided to do each one different this year. I was in the mood to have them all look like individual little gardens.

They all contain geraniums...but the fillers are different from each other.
I don't know why I chose to do it this way this year...but I DO like it.

Maybe next spring I'll do them similar again.
That's the fun of gardening, isn't it? Change...textures, colors, species, heights, etc.
Once they are really full, and hanging down below the white boxes, I'll take more pictures so you can see them in all their glory.
In just a couple more weeks, all six boxes should be overflowing with beautiful bursts of color.(and you won't even notice the green inserts the plants are in). It's so much easier for me to be able to drop each little garden into the window box. Then at the end of the season, I can remove the insert with the spent plants. The box is cleaned and ready for the next year.
I hope you are able to get outside and do some planting this weekend. Or maybe you want to just sit on the deck, or patio and relax.
Whatever your plans are....enjoy the outdoors.
Hugs to all.
