Last year I didn’t do a lot of flowers. I tried a few things in the existing window boxes and they didn’t work. The box was the problem. Not enough drainage holes so the flowers were either dry or overwatered. Out ye damn boxes.
This year, after the deck was done, I splurged on new boxes and an old standing planter that I had at the old house. Things are flourishing and everything is beautiful.
Ain’t summer grand? We could use some rain. Most of the rain coming east in the past few weeks has missed us. Yesterday we spent the day watering all the new plantings. We are lucky we can that. We are lucky that almost all of the new plantings were done in April. They got a good start and are doing well. A few were planted in the last few weeks and we are working to make them happy. The deer did a little pruning but not much.
