Day 149 - A Window of Opportunity


Most of us dream of doing something extraordinary. We want to create something that touches lives and instills curiosity for creating greater things. And some people see the opportunity to do just that and won't let go until that dream becomes a reality.
Louise Hartwig saw the opportunity and the need for a children's garden. All she needed was quite a few thousand dollars and hundreds of hours of volunteer work. You can read about that journey at the link below, but enjoy now the gorgeous windowbox plantings she created for the Butterfly House - the centerpiece of this gardening feast. Created from easy to find plants like Gaura 'Whirling Butterflies', Petunia 'Supertunia Raspberry Blast', and 'Supertunia Royal Magenta', you have the opportunity to create this windowbox at your own home.

Have to give Louise props on this, not only for her passion to create a children's garden (which by the way is beautiful and innovative) but those window boxes are slammin gorgeous!
