Violas, cyclamen and dogwood stems in a window box

St John’s Wood

I featured John’s window boxes last summer when they were filled with orange geraniums and coleus. Here’s his winter version. The cyclamen and violas are pretty, but it’s the pale green dogwood stems that really make the whole thing special.

St Johns Wood

My friend John often asks when his garden is going to feature on this blog, and I always tell him I’ll cover it when it’s up to scratch! I’m joking, of course. John has a great garden and I’ve tried to photograph it many times but haven’t been able to do it justice.

John would be the first to point out that his window boxes are past their best, and it’s a shame I couldn’t capture them in their prime. But I really like the colour combo – the bright orange geraniums against the dark leaves. There were some black petunias in the mix too, but John had to take them out because they got mildew.
