I recently had a little upgrading done to my house, a 30Âs cottage on the northern end of the San Francisco bay, which included the addition of several window boxes, two tall planter boxes (36Â high and 24Â wide), and two squatty planter boxes (9Â high and 24Â wide). I might add that these are all ÂWedgwood BlueÂ, which turned out to be a whole heck of a lot more electric and vibrant than the little one-inch paint sample.
The short planters are on either side of the single step up to the porch. The tall planters are on the two front corners of the porch. The porch roof is about 10Â above the floor. The porch faces east.
The front yard has several deciduous trees, and spring through fall the house is nicely nestled in greenery. But during the winter the yard is rather barren and the house looks a little bleak. For these containers IÂd like to focus on planting that will be at their best during the winter.
So thatÂs the story. What do you see in those boxes? I'm pretty clueless.
