From window boxes to back yards and green parks, this season fills the streets with flowers
Geraniums are red, lobelia are blue. My first job in London was at a posh plant nursery. I worked outside in the square selling plants for gardens and window boxes. I would take my lunch break in Holland Park. I was a teenager. I was squatting and super happy.
Window-box flowers were mostly geraniums, pelargoniums, lobelia, hanging petunia. Geraniums were red, sometimes ivy-leaf and hanging. Lobelia were dark blue and trailing, same as the petunias.
