I didn't bother to plant anything in the mailbox flowerbox..it is too hard to keep it watered all the time, and even if I do, the plants seem to just bake. But low and behold, miracles happen everyday if you only look. Some birdie must have dropped a seed or two bringing about this moment of joy for me. Lovely happy sunflowers.

Who plants sunflowers in a planter box by the street anyway?
someone did...hahahaha!

  1. Bring the ground up to equal level with the top edge with sand, mix it into the present soil, plant drought-happy plants like sedums and semps. They LOVE the heat and will thrive. There all kinds of heights, colors, textures. It is a good thing that succulent greenhouse is not closer to me or I would surely be broke as a joke.

  3. That is the cutest! I hadn't planted anything in my mailbox planter either this year. Yes, trouble remembering to water every day. Finally threw in some morning glory seeds - thought that might look nice. They are sprouting and then put in one bunch of petunias to wave at me.
