I think I promised you all a little flower box update back when I shared my 5 Tips for Gorgeous Window Boxes with you.
Well, I’m popping in to quick deliver. I have to say this has been my worst flower box year, it basically rained all of June, which had my flowers drowning. We had so much rain that most of the docks on the lake were underwater, definitely a strange summer for us.
Because of all the rain it made it hard to control how much I fertilize and water like I normally do. We also had one crazy storm that blew my flowers to bits.
Anyways, enough excuses, here are the road side ones. These were the ones that got killed in that storm. I’ve been nursing them back to health and they look ok, just not as full and pretty as the backyard ones.
Here, I’ll show you the back ones, SO much better!
I’ll back up and show you what they looked like the week I planted them, so you can really see how well my tips worked, despite the crummy weather.
The back ones are a bit more protected from the wind so let’s all pretend to back up to the beginning of July when all my window boxes looked like this and we’ll act like I actually remembered to take photos and post about it then kay?
Sigh, maybe next year!
Ok I just heard a giant crash from the playroom – looks like I need to make sure everyone’s limbs are still in tact, t minus 13 days and counting til school starts and I will get back to regularly scheduled blogging!
