I love window boxes.
They certainly can make a wow!
Finally, I was happy when we got some window boxes of our own.
Took Mike a few years convincing because, he was hesitant to drill in the brick of our home.
Finally, he did, and I have been enjoying them since.
The wood shutters we had custom made by a local home builder.
I spied them in a new development and thought they would look fabulous on our home.
Certainly was an upgrade to the plastic shutters and these will last a lifetime.
The are now 5 years old and still look fantastic in spite of the harsh elements of sun beating down on them. They will need a new coat of stain this year.
Let me share some window box inspiration with you and then of course share our own.
Things are finally greening up around here.
The site hooks and lattic had a great selection.
Although, we just bought ours at Lowes hardware.
I thought these were great inspiration.

Don’t you love how the variations of flowers?
all so different.
I went basic
you know why?
COME On you know why?
That is all I can about keep alive around here.
This here Japanese maple we planted around 4 years ago.
It was a tiny little stick of a tree.
It really does well here with full sun for at least 6 hours of the day.
Been sprucing up the Southern porch as well..
not quite there though yet to show you the full…
soon I will.
They are sort of pathetic looking for now, but give them a month or two, and I hoping they are over flowing with color and blooms.
fingers crossed please:)

Another dreary damp day here in the Carolinas.
I suppose the only bright side to that is that my flowers will grow faster.
Have a great day!
