I planted the kitchen window box.....when I'm at the sink I like to see flowers. Often hummingbirds come to visit, and some years the Carolina Wrens have built nests here and raised their young.
Looks a bit sparse right now, but if all works well and Nature is kind, I'll have a lovely display in a month or so when the plants grow, fill in, and start trailing!
No sooner had I hung the box when a butterfly
appeared checking out the heliotrope
and petunia flowers....lovely.
I feel the need to make a comment here on the price of garden plants this Spring. I'm finding very high prices on both perennials and annuals in this area. If you've starting buying plants do you feel prices have risen quite a lot since last year?
