Hmmm…can you tell what this post is going to be about? Some of you have been reveling in your new spring blooms, but it’s just barely happening for us up in Michigan. See all those snarly looking shrubs along the garage? Those should be beautiful blooms of Korean lilacs, but they still haven’t opened up.
However, this is a good opportunity to let you know my next outdoor project.
I’ve got some windows on my garage that are just begging to be dressed up! (Of course, some trimmed shrubs might help that begging just a little!)
Some advice on window boxes? NEVER go too small. The bigger arrangement, the better. If your house sits off the road (as mine does), you’re going to want it to make a statement.
The one below is my absolute favorite. How can you look at this picture and not feel a smile come on?
Last, but certainly not least…
Once our weather finally gets a little more consistent, I’ll be off to the store for window boxes and flowers! My mom lives a few minutes away from a Smith and Hawken outlet store (I know—must be nice), so hopefully I’ll score something there!
