Flower Boxes

These flower boxes are on the southern exposure.  The Tumbling Tom tomatoes have exceeded my expectations.  They are covered with yellow blooms and green tomatoes.  As they ripen, I pick them so they don't make a wonderful showing; but I'm quite satisfied with the lush greenery.  What does not show is a bunch of strawberries.  The runners are twined with the tomatoes.  I plan to save the strawberries, but it will be interesting separating them.
The flower box on the front left is the one that fell off when we had so much rain.  Compared to the flower box to the right of it, it is pretty damaged, but a lot of it survived the fall.
