On The Street Where You Live

On the street where you live, anyone can tell who the gardeners are among the residents. They will have a killer container, one that wasn’t purchased at the local box store, leading to the front door. Or if it is mass produced, that container will be filled with an array of beautifully assembled plants. And if the plants are not an unusual assortment, but maybe just red geraniums, then they are always perfectly groomed, no dead leaves, and predictably blooming with gusto and always the most vibrant you have seen.

On my street, you can find me year round. Not just one container, but 93 (no, not all at the front door.) This month, look for me where the Crinum asiaticum (giant crinum lily) is blooming at the mail box!

What is at your front door or mail box?

  1. Those are beautiful plants. Sadly, we have no mailbox. Our area uses community boxes located every few blocks.

  2. Perennials at the mailbox and a few annuals, but definitely not 93 containers. Wow, that is impressive not only for the amount of time to create but the maintenance involved. 👏🏻
