It’s been a while since a window box featured in this blog, apart from the one in the title.  Here’s a seasonal view from our window, through some late planted marigolds to the cherry tree in the garden below.  The marigolds – the Tagetes variety that English gardeners call French marigolds – were a replacement for the nasturtiums that died when we were away in August. They are not my favourite bedding plant, too stiff and so fully double that they have no nectar to offer to insects, but there wasn’t much choice in the market so late in the season.  Despite my dislike, the plants have thrived and are now flowering in harmony with the autumn leaves of the cherry tree and a lone resurrected nasturtium.    What’s not to like?
