There are those who think it’s a waste of time and money that my employer has flowers in planter boxes around campus. Personally, I think it makes being at work much more pleasant – and it certainly makes walking around campus a more lovely experience.
Admittedly, I have not checked every other house on the planet. I’m pretty comfortable making this assumption though. We built a planter box in our entryway. We have a bunch of small palms planted in it and it provides a nice bit of green and breaks up the open space well. In years past I have not done any holiday decorating on or in the planter, but this year I had the brilliant idea to add my large solar Christmas bulbs to the planter box. It is stupendous, if I do say so myself. And I did.
