Newly Installed Window Boxes.. With the New Summer Flowers

For Summer.. We have another project to make our house a little bit more charming. What is better then window boxes? We live in a neighborhood of little row homes. I have always wanted to add these window boxes to add to the charm.

After getting the window boxes installed, we went to Home Depot where we picked out various flowering and non flowering foliage. Some that will grow to hang over the side of the boxes, to give the window box the nice full look. After choosing 7 different plants for each box and picking up two huge bags of organic soil mix, the fun began.

My 19 year old and 21 month old son helped with planting the flowers in the boxes. It became a little more interesting when the second story window box needed planting. My oldest son, went upstairs and caught each plant as I threw them from the front yard. It was pretty impressive, we didn’t break or damage one plant.

Then end result beautiful window boxes, that are only going to get nicer looking as the boxes become fuller as the plants mature.

Andy, what fun would it be without the kids playing with the hose at the end of a hot day?
