The other morning I was walking a running-late little one to school and finally had the opportunity to check out this amazing wall of summer blooms. I'd seen it from the street, but up close and person it is just stunning! And since my own container garden is on maintenance mode this summer (due to lack of time and a need for water conservation) I especially enjoy seeing the efforts of others. Wow! But, before any of you get too jealous, I happen to know that this row of planters is maintained by a professional gardener, so do keep that in mind if you happen to be lacking a green thumb. (Which I really don't believe in anyway.....)
It is amazing to see what one can do with planters no bigger (deeper) than that of standard window boxes!
These planters were built right on top of the old stone wall— a great use of space. I'm assuming there are drainage holes on the other side, something to keep in mind when planning a project like this one.
Gorgeous flowers. A very nicely renovated old stone house. Sigh.
