Window Boxes

Window boxes are to Paris as strip malls are to America - they're everywhere. Difference being, window boxes are nice to look at. I could spend a week admiring and photographing nothing but window boxes, and by the end of last weekend, my husband simply sighed when I pointed the camera in the direction of yet another one. Many of them incorporate flowers that compliment the shade of the building's trim. That attention to detail results in the quaint Paris beauty I can't get enough of. The above boxes caught my eye due to the tiny blue blossoms that popped against the turquoise paint.

I’ve always found window boxes completely charming. And I actually just bought a similar product that ‘clicks’ right into the rail of the porch. Now I just have to find flowers to fill them with…

Beautiful! What I’d give for a view like that from my window. :)
