flower boxes

Flower-Box




one of my favorite things about summer are
flower boxes. this one is filled with geraniums, licorice, sweet potato vine and marigolds. I love to look at flower boxes to see all the different combinations of flowers people like to put together. sometimes I see boxes filled with just one type of flower, like all petunias, which is a nice effect too.

on another topic, has anyone ever heard of the imagination movers? they are a popular new orleans based alternative rock band for preschoolers. I got a tip from one of my readers
that they will be playing at the nassau coliseum parking lot tomorrow, saturday and sunday. more details are available here.
