    I'm sure. Hanging out the window working upside down. Tudor windows in Texas?
    The year's at the spring
    And day's at the morn;
    Morning's at seven;
    The hill-side's dew-pearled;
    The lark's on the wing;
    The snail's on the thorn:
    God's in his heaven—
    All's right with the world!

      Yes. The house was built in ‘78 in what was at the time, an upscale neighborhood. The first floor had them. When we replaced the windows, we changed them from regular windows to casement and matched the style to the first floor.

      They used to look like this. I like what we did a lot better.

          Another excellent job, BJ. Very impressive.

            I definitely like the Tudor windows better there. I would probably do some window-boxes too if it didn't just mean a box full of dead plants on display. I can kill a plant just by looking at it.

              Snake plant. Not even I can kill it.

                It’s Texas. It will never be the lush, monstrous window box like in England. Only constant watering and fussing will get it past our brutal summer. And even then, it probably won’t look much better than it did on the first day. I suggested cactus but was voted down.

                  I planted tomatoes on Easter one year in Florida. Garden facing North I could barely keep them hydrated- they needed to be watered at least 2 times a day. But the tomatoes that the critters let me have were good.

                  The amazing thing was that they would wilt by the time I got home from work, but they would recover before your eyes as you spray water in their general direction

                    Since the snake plant is from Africa, I imagine it can handle just about anything. But I am like Nova. I can kill a plant before I get it home. My mother had a jade plant. I had bought it for her for Mother's Day when I was a kid and they sold such things at the May Fair, which always took place on Mother's Day weekend. She had that plant and gave away its smaller babies for almost 40 years. I instantly killed the one she gave me for my house. I then managed to kill the rest of them when she died.

                          I like it. Does it actually grow potatoes, or is that just one of those names?

                            Just one of those names. And it is Sweet Potato Vine. It’s very happy. You can’t see it but it is making flowers.
