the windowbox

This is an entry in the garden journal today. I got this copper windowbox last year and then ordered a wrought iron frame for it to sit in. My son got it mounted for me under the front window. Already the copper has become streaked with the turquoise green of natural patina. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and it really adds a nice touch to the look of my small house.

Oh, I see Lin's said what I was thinking! Such wonderful illustrations, they seem to show another world of soft shimmering colours and delicate lines.
