10 Window Box Planter Ideas

  10 Window Box Planter Ideas In college, I once had a professor comment on my garden designs as being very ‘Monet’. It was probably the best and only compliment this teacher ever gave me, and I will never forget it. He was speaking about how in all my designs I would attempt to bring color up off the ground. When we are in our outdoor Edens, we don’t walk around with our heads hanging down. Our line of sight is when we are standing up, sitting down or even when we are looking out of a window from the inside. I like color ...

Edible Flowers Garden Bed Design

  Edible Flower Garden Bed Design My herb bed is in need of a desperate make over. It’s been three years since I turned a dry dirt filled box (appreciated only by the neighbor’s cats) into an overflowing plethora of edible goodness. I have been adding to this bed over the years, including several perennials such as peonies, phlox, and crocosmia; and although they have been very happy there, it was time for them to live in another area of the garden. After successfully transplanting my old friends, I topped up the herb bed with ...
