Window Box Geraniums

Do you have a favorite window box flower? If your answer is Geraniums it's your lucky day!
My dear friend Paula has several window boxes that are works of art.
Paula says they are "work" so maybe they are a labor of love?

The Creeping Jenny is just getting started, by the end of summer it will be brushing the ground.
This table set above and below is just one of many in Paula's backyard. I love how it is aging.
I love the heart detail on the back of the chair.

What a great idea Paula had to add the solar lights to her window boxes.

I have loved and envied Paula's beautiful window boxes for years. Last year my sweet hubby built me two window boxes of my own!! Below are some photos of my backyard window box at the end of last summer.
The inside view of the geraniums looked just as beautiful as the outside view did.
The Creeping Jenny thrived, as did the geraniums.

This year I went with a petunia theme for my window box, check back later this summer for photos.
 I hope you enjoyed the Geranium window box tour. Thank you to Paula for again letting me showcase her charming yard. All the love and creativity Paula pours into her home inspires me to no end!!  I hope it inspires you too!
Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, Lori

  3. Geraniums are a favorite for my garden. I don't have window boxes, but I like to grow geraniums in pots that I place in among ferns and other plants in my garden. I have to say these are gorgeous! '-)

  7. I love to use geraniums because they are just so darn hardy and even when I am horrendously forgetful about watering they survive me!! Plus that sharp strong colour is such a great accent to the yard!

  8. Hi Lori, nice to see Paula's window boxes on your blog. Yes they are something aren't they. I have a window box so this year I got the creeping jenny hoping to get something as beautiful as Paula's. We shall see. Checked out your older posts as well and there was Paula's winter mantel. Got to show this to Wendy at Paper Daisies. BTW......I met you at the store and I've been a friend of Paula's since high school.....that was 100 yrs ago....ha! All your creations are terrific Lori and enjoyed my tour of your blog.
