Flowered Windowbox

I LOVE windowboxes ...they're immensely cheerful and are those wonderful mini-gardens that can afford such joy!

It's going to be mighty busy from this weekend forward .... With only this weekend to ready for my trip, birthdays and grandchildren, obligations and chores, I may be scarce from the painting table ...
but my sketchbook will be with me ...!

Lin, I love this one!! Super color in the flowers contrasted against the building. Great job on the window glass too. I love window boxes. They are always so interesting to me. I've taken lots of photos of them. Nice job on this!

Oh I love it; wish I had windows that would take window boxes! Yours is so colorful and cheerful. Thanks for cheering up this gloomy overcast very cold day.

Have a wonderful trip and do lots of sketching!
Hugs,

Your window box reminds me of my trip to Venice in September, 2005 -- the windowboxes there in early fall (late summer, really, it seemed) were spectacular!
