for love of window boxes

I have been forcing bulbs in anticipation of a long winter void of flowers. I am hoping to have some daffodils, tulips and amaryllis soon enough. Until then, I will look longingly at photos of Québec. 
I am so impressed with how those further north than I am celebrate the warmth of summer. Really, how they celebrate weather that just isn't freezing. I have lovely memories of eating outdoors under a gas lamp, covered in a blanket. Here in the little state, we would just sit indoors. 

happy tuesday!
enjoy your warm weather memories, kim
