Well that is beautiful. While the use of window flower boxes can be a great way to add a little splash of color and pizzazz to your home, I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to build it out of particle board.  That thing won’t last through the winter.  And if, by some miracle it does, the bottom will fall out the first time you go to water it in the spring.

And you may not have heard, but about oh, I don’t know…at least 5,000 years ago, someone invented a very useful tool called a saw.  You can use a saw to make a clean cut through wood instead of chewing your way through it like a beaver all hopped up on goofballs.  Look it up.

    Reminds me of a stage balcony. “Rapunzel, Rapunzel” or is it “Romero, where art thou Romeo”…

    Perhaps it isn’t a flower box, but some type of strange home repair or a cover for an ac window unit installed in the wall.

    ““` It’s almost enough to make you weep, isn’t it? Observe the example of the particularly fine spindlework. It somehow survived a LONG succession of optically-tonedeaf owners. And picture how this bijou treasure COULD have looked today.

    ““` Sigh. I guess everybody has to live somewhere. I just find myself wishing that the least preservationist-minded could wind up in the existing Stalinist-Brutalist concrete bunkers, where they could do the least harm . . .
