Happy Dance: The Window Box is Back!

This window box is freshly planted, so everything will get fuller and taller, but it’s quite a nice start! I love the various colors of purple and white. Purple, white and green is a nice color combination. Soft, calming, and happy. I’m thrilled that this window box is back in its rightful place…

Happy Plants Thriving In The Sun

Spring Flowers – Charleston, SC

There is no better color than that of sunlight on anything. Just look at that amazing blue sky and the sculpture like shape of the tree. #beautiful
