Mitt europeiske hjørne

… or in other words, “My European corner“. This is the first step in creating my Little Europe around my house. I plan to put this and that in the driveway area behind the garage to create a corner that feels and looks more like Europe. I love the cozy feelings of European laneways and corners – that sense of history and intimacy.

I have been on a quest to find a couple of metal window box planters so I can put them under the front windows, as well as one for the side window. I love the flowers and contrast that I saw when I travelled in Europe last year – in the drab corners and buildings in cities like Prague or Tallinn, I would find a window planter underneath the window to brighten the scenery. I still haven’t found them here in Adelaide unfortunately!

I am still on that quest – if anybody knows where I can find a wrought-iron window box planter here in Adelaide, please contact me! Well, putting that aside, I thought maybe I should find another way to put more plants in my European corner to improve the view. I found a cheap bracket for a planter in K-Mart along with the planter – I also bought some plants for the planter, and voila! – here is the result …

I’ll keep you updated on what I do with the progress of my European corner. 🙂

I've finally relented to the lures of blogging - and for those who care, well, I'm a self-confessed geek who's a wanderer at heart, who thinks and analyses too much, and who's trying hard to hold on to his 7-year old inner persona.

  1. Draw a design of the window box planter and the dimension. I’ll have it made here and you can take it back to Adelaide when you come for Christmas. Are you coming though?
