When I was little I was obsessed with the Tweedle Bugs who lived in Ernie's window box. I think it was all about their miniature world and the window box itself. I grew up very secluded in the woods and did not ever have any firsthand experience with the micro-nature of windowboxes...
Then over twenty years later, I move to Brooklyn and start working in a great plant nursery (in Caroll Gardens). One of my major jobs at the nursery is windowbox design! As an urban dweller, this can be your only link to outdoor gardening! After many loft apartments in big reclaimed warehouse buildings, now we live in the second floor apartment of a cute townhouse in Clinton Hill, and I am very excited to create some window boxes for our front 3 windows!
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. ~William Shakespeare
