Beautifully Boxed In

I really love window boxes.  I would install them on every window in my house if I could but guess what?  Matt hates window boxes.  I really can’t pinpoint the reason why such a seemingly un-threatening thing like window boxes would set him off, but has some really deep rooted dislike for them.  I however cannot get enough.  Sure, you can go overboard really quickly, so I found some images of very clean, natural looking varieties.  Mostly greens flow out of them, softening an angular facade.  I love the idea of using succulents or herbs to just get a hit of color without any clash.

I plan to get one onto my kitchen window that overlooks the new patio.  It will be a perfect spot for some herbs which are accessible from the kitchen, but help to beautify the patio and give our otherwise very square and grey exterior a nice little splash of green.

So, even though it’s one of those little things that may not go over super well, I think I’m going to go for it!

Do you have window boxes?  Do you like them?  Or, like Matt, do you dislike?
