window boxes

city flower

[gallery link="file"] When it comes to bringing a bit of the country into your city life, there's not much that does it better than a window box. Perched somewhere between public space and private space, a window box offers something pretty for folks streetside as well as a welcome view for those inside looking out. I'm especially fond of the range of window boxes that you can find on a walk around the block. Sometimes they're lush and full, sometimes they're utterly abandoned, and still other times they're completely accidental, just vines and leaves and no box at all. Here, a few shots from our neighborhood.
