I know some of you remember that, last week,
MR. SWEET put up this darling black, trimmed in white, awning for me.
Now, an awning, ESPECIALLY when it is flanked by two cute, simple shutters
that Mr. Sweet made with his own two hands.....
just CALLS for a
beautiful window box.
Here he is, just building and routing away ...
He even made the cute corbels...all handmade.
WHAT A MAN.!
and may I just say....
My little humble cottage now sports a great looking awning
a darling window box.
"I sure do thank you, Mr. Sweet...you did SUCH a good job..."
hmmmm...looking at this photo shows me that I need to add
a little color somewhere....wonder what?
I DID, at one time, have some beautiful bright red flowers in pots in front of the porch
but drought and H.O.T. sun brought 'em to their knees and they are LONG gone.
and HEY..who left the door open?
I chose a few shade loving plants for now...
I hope, with hand watering and MIRACLE GROW, they will thrive,
thus filling my box with lovely greens...
Can ya see it...just full and overflowing?
Now...I AM supposed to PLANT these in soil in the box, right?
Some of the plants might do ok for awhile in the little containers...
but not for long.
I haven't actually PLANTED them but I do have potting soil standing by.
I would LOVE to find some flowering shade loving plants..
I just LOVE it...
I hope to buy more but, as some of you might know,
we have to take baby steps in our buying power around Sweet Nothings.
We have to do a little at a time..as our Social Security checks allow us.
We found out plants are NOT CHEAP, either.
and I am sooo proud of it all.
I JUST LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER.
