Fiddling around with the window display in the shop today. Got all inspired by the zingy red Geraniums and juicy lime green Soleirolli - or as its commonly known Mind Your Own Business. I just love this combination in nature. And the earthy terracotta window boxes and zinc watering cans and buckets add a rustic feel that is so me. I often use the wooden fruit crates for display, they're so versatile. Back in the day these were really easy to come by and cheap, now they retail at about £20-£30 at most places. I would advise you snap them up if you ever see them cheaper. In fact don't, I want them.
Don't know about you but I tend to think about sprucing up the garden at this time of year, ready for for dinners alfresco and lazy days on the lawn. And if you only have a ledge, its amazing what a difference a vibrant window box can make. Not much chance of getting out in the garden today though, as the rain has been pelting down. Nice weather for ducks!
