Sharing inspiration is what makes AT (and the web) interesting. With Garden Month just
about to end over (but only on AT, not at home), I wanted to share some really lovely emails I received since sharing my own fire escape garden in this Monday post (pic above with fresh strawberries). Thanks to Kim, Josh, Nick and Susan!...
- If YOU have a great flower box situation to share, email me at maxwell @ apartmenttherapy.com and put FLOWERBOX in the subject header!
here are some pics of my windowbox (taken this evening). The flowers are Early Sunrise Coreopsis and East Friesland. Happy Summer!
I was just inspired to make a little flower garden on my fire escape, with some pretty foliage and bell pepper plants...Complete with solar lights!
And a picture of our living room...

I can't help but show off a bit. My boyfriend welded custom window boxes for my house. See attached pictures. Lovely. Yesterday he installed an irrigation system in the boxes (complete with timer), which means they're self-watering. I'm not sure whether he's (1) too lazy to water the flowers of (2) showing off. I suspect it's a bit of both.
