  1. Every pot and window box — a joy to behold!

  2. Each one is an inspiration and they seem to be going through the season quite well.

  3. Your blog is wonderful. Excellent writing,well organized and your containersoiî take my breath away.

    This is the first fan letter I have written in my whole life.

  4. Jennifer Smith says

    These are wonderful. What plant is cascading down in your 2nd window box? Just lovely.

  5. Beautiful. I almost wish it was spring again so I can plant more containers. The plants in each seem so well balanced. Do you trim during the season to keep one plant from dominating?

    • Deborah Silver says

      Dear Ben, you can get close to creating shape and balance by your plant choices. I dead head flowers, but I do not trim the plants. Best, Deborah
