Flowerbox Inspiration from our Readers!

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!

Hi AT,

here are some pics of my windowbox (taken this evening). The flowers are Early Sunrise Coreopsis and East Friesland. Happy Summer!

Hey AT,

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...

Hi AT,

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.
