Planted the window box this year
This year I managed to buy plants early enough to do the window box. I chose the blue Salvia because it does so well in the heat. This window is on the west side of the house and gets the full hot afternoon sun. Also added some Dusty Miller and planted some Nasturtium seed in the corners, a buttery yellow color with variegated leaves. My hope is that the Nasturtiums cascade over the box a bit.
So far I only have to climb the ladder once a week to water it, later I'm sure there'll be more frequent trips. Hey, it's a great view of the surrounding countryside from up there! :) For some reason the photos turned out a little grainy, plus the sun was just going down ( salvia leaves aren't yellow).
