Window Boxes – Project Three

It was the first real warm day last weekend so the whole family took advantage of the sun to complete the first outdoor projects of the year.

My husband revived his quest for the world’s best bubble machine, much to my daughter’s delight.

My daughter’s project was to make these seeds sprout flowers overnight. Much to her disappointment I did not buy the ‘magic’ grow overnight type of flowers she had hoped for. This is a project about patience.

And my first project, replanting the window boxes. I have a front porch that gets direct sunlight for most of the day, which means more than once a season I have to replace the flowers. So after trying every type of flower, special soil and fertilizer.

I am trying something new this year.


I took a trip to the local garden store and bought:


Window boxes (with good drainage)

A few different styles of succulents

The planters look great and are thriving.

Cross another project off the list.
