I put in the overgrown vines that will b the roses for the kitchen window. Ive been looking fw to doing this window, its my favorite window of the house. I don't think I will use the ivy this time, because I don't want to cover the design on this window box and I also want to save what I have left of the ivy for the front of the house. I realize how unrealistic this is....with the large tree like vines in this box...but I think when I get to the stage of actually doing a landscaped base, I will make it look like the vines broke through the bottom of the box and will grow a little beneath it too...just a thought...but I also don't care if its unrealistic, I love the abundance of the flowers around the windows. I have a few flower kits to "plant" in this box too,from sdk.
