If you look at the header picture on my blog you are looking at the West facing side of our barn...uhh - home..no barn (whatever!)
That picture was taken right before I put window boxes up. One on each small window, 1 facing East and 1 facing West. As you can imagine, it gets pretty hot in South Texas...and no matter what I did, I could not keep anything alive in the West facing window box....not to mention, this one was difficult and messy to water!
Well, I finally gave up and resorted to using silk flowers. Here they are. What do you think?
