    But here are the finished window boxes. DH did a nice job, although one of them is a little wonky. But he worked so hard on them, and he tires easily these days, so I can certainly keep my mouth shut and be super-grateful that I actually have these window boxes! I went with creeping jenny, coleus, and purple and white petunias.

    Oh, and while he was at it, he painted an old Adirondack chair that was left behind and falling apart. He replaced a broken slat, secured the wiggles with screws, and painted it the same High Tide.

    Good choice! I loved the chair scene for its pure sense of serenity. Enjoy.
