Show Garden number 1 was called Out-of-the-Box Floral. Designers from member clubs of The Garden Clubs of Illinois demonstrated how an "empty canvas," in this case simple wooden window boxes, could be transformed into a masterpiece. Using color, design, texture, height and fragrance the window boxes became classical, whimsical and bold works of art for the garden. source
This part of the show inspired me to consider adding window boxes to the front of our house again this year. We haven't had them installed for over 5 years so I wonder what Lee will think of that?
