I love windowboxes (and railingboxes...LOL)
My back door. Boxes on the railing.
Also under the breakfast area to the left.
I like how the variegated vinca hangs down.
I use sedum also because it stays nice and green, tolerates the heat and comes back each year for FREE!
Sedum, variegated vinca and impatiens in the windowbox.

    perfect timing!Our s FL home is stucco and we can't hang window boxes, so it just recently ocurred to me to go to Home Depot and see if their window boxes can be hung on a railing. Thanks for the reminder: Your flowers look so beautiful and healthy!
