Road trips always bring about opportunities to view plantings and gardens. On a road trip from Florida to Massachusetts in August, I found that the plants featured in the pots, window boxes and gardens had more similarities than differences as we traveled from South to North. Some cities and areas are really into planting in window boxes and city gardens. I personally think that gardens uplift everyone's spirits when they look at them. What do you think? Here are two window box plantings in Philadelphia. This was a city of art with many beautiful gardens and artwork and my favorite.....mosaics!
