Windowbox Full of Springtime Symmetry

This Morton Street window box stopped me in my tracks last night.

Check out a couple more West Village spring window boxes here.

A Moss Model of the Brooklyn Bridge

Anthropologie decorated their new Chelsea Market store with moss representations of New York City icons, including the Brooklyn Bridge. Love it, but can’t help dreaming about a version created with live plants and succulents rather than train set green dried moss.

Spring Inspiration: String Gardens

Such a stunning concept.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Unfortunately, this is not the most practical concept for a roof garden. Under the blazing August sun, you’d need to water these every five minutes. Still, this photos and the others on stringgardens.com are perfect inspiration on a cold, gray morning in Brooklyn [discovered via Apartment Therapy].

Use CB2’s maze to create a simple green wall

We love the cover of the new CB2 catalog. Since when are guys shown gardening on the cover of a national catalog? Isn’t it cool how they use this metal maze wall hanging thing as a way to create a simple green wall effect, using air plants and succulents. We like the CB2 Julep rocker in this photo too.

There’s a step by guide on how to make this green wall on the CB2 site.

Gaze at a Brooklyn Green Roof

We’re wrapping it up on our roof garden. R* took the umbrella down last weekend; think he put it under the bed. This weekend, we’re going to cover the rose bushes, pull the annual herbs, and stack up the chairs. So long to our first summer of gardening.

This winter, we’re planning to stay energized with photos, gardening books, and professional gardeners’ portfolios. First up: this stunning green roof garden in Brooklyn created by Timothy, The Organic Gardener.

How did your roof garden grow this year? What’s inspiring you as the cold weather rolls in?
