I’ve driven past them a million times, straining to see exactly what they’re all about in the 30 seconds before the light changes and I turn the corner.
But today was different; today I stopped to have a look-see…
Simple, straightforward construction, and I like the accent paint color on the front of the boxes.
The plants are alive, but not thriving. It must be hot up there on the west side of a brick building.
Only one of the three trellises has something growing on it.
Which provided an easy opportunity to see just how they went together.
I think this box was designed as a terrarium of sort.
But this version is my favorite, with plantings coming out the front and the top!
The black tube you’ve seen winding through each box has to be the irrigation. I meant to follow it around the side of the building to see where it connected, but I forgot. I guess it’s good to leave a little exploring for next time.
