Last year, I stumbled upon stunning window boxes in Salem, Mass. which I touted here. The other day, I found some to rival last year’s discovery. These won first place from the City of Salem and Salem Garden Club this year. Now that I know there’s an official award to be won, my competitive drive is sparked. So, next year look for my entry. This is the same kind of motivation that got Pearl Fryer, topiary-artist-extraordinaire, started. Dream big.
