The longer I garden, the more appreciate hard, working easy care succulents. If you were reading the blog two years ago, you’ll remember that I have a window shelf on the garage window that I line with pots.
Usually I purchase begonias at the local greenhouse and they do well. Since we had a few trees taken down, this area now gets more sun. Begonias weren’t really an option, I need something that can take the heat and won’t need watered twice a day. Naturally, I chose a few succulents. When I was at Buchwalter Greenhouse with my mom, I spotted their collection and picked three of my favorites.
I potted them up in my collection of silver pots and they look AMAZING!
I wanted to remember the names of them, so I used some thin copper strips to label them.
I have a few other succulents in the house that I plan on repotting to complete the window. The window has actually been replaced and has new trim that also needs painted white. I’ll make sure I post a photo when it’s all buttoned up, which should be later this week.
Window boxes have always been something I have loved and I always wanted to have them on my home. This isn’t a proper window box, but it looks just as good.
