Inspired by a post at my favorite home design blog, Apartment Therapy, Nathan and I made a window sill planter from a gutter last year (or was it the year before?) in our kitchen window. We planted succulents and they did ok for a while, but apparently our kitchen window doesn’t actually get enough sun for succulents, so recently they’ve been looking rather wilted.

So a couple weeks ago, we headed to Anawalt, our favorite hardware/garden store and bought some shade-friendly flowers to refresh the planter.

We chose a variety of begonias, hopefully they do well! Already they seem to be sprouting some new flower buds.

Overall, it has brightened our kitchen and is making me excited for spring!
