Here comes the morning sun, lighting up the window box on the deck.
I love window boxes but this one has been a bit of a problem, not much seems to want to grow here. Out of default I decided to try a variety of succulents.
And, they have done wonderfully. I don't think there is anything else in the plant world that you can have so much fun with as succulents. Their versatility is amazing and in light of the serious drought we are facing succulents are perfect for water-saving plantings.
It is almost impossible to put them together and have the grouping look bad. I added this little bird and a decorative plate to bring out the color in the foliage and blooms.
I am particularly pleased with the pink, bell-like blooms, I have quite a few of these throughout the garden, I am embarrassed to admit I don't know it's name but I am sure it is a very common sort because it grows and spreads abundantly.
I like it with the little pink plate. After it finishes blooming I might put something else here, maybe a little birdhouse.
For me this is hard to beat...pretty, interesting to look at, takes very little water and best of all it thrives with almost no care!
Thank you for visiting I hope you have a care-free day!
