In the mean time I took some photographs of some of the containers that I have in my yard right now and wanted to share then before the frost comes and they are done for the year.
I put together one of these on each side of the garage. I planted them back in June and they really took off. I love the combination and texture of the foliage. I remember the day that I purchased the plants for these containers. I had a meeting out on Vashon Island and stopped in at Dig Floral and Garden and made my plant selection. Funny what you remember - I can't remember what I was doing yesterday but I can remember buying these plants!
This is actually a combination of a couple of containers. The grass is a perennial one that I put together several years ago. It''s really beautiful and makes a relaxing sound as it catches a breeze. The one in the background is a simple annual one container with variegated geranium and fountain grass.
I've got this one hanging on the fence to the left of the gate going into the backyard. I love how the evergreen clematis has made it's way around the plant.
I love the color of this Calibrachoa (miniature petunia). It looks great hanging along the fence in the backyard. This is a great plant that requires little care and just grows and grows!
This is one of my all time favorites! I planted this oak tree in a pot and have had it on the back patio for years now. Each fall the colors get more vibrant. In a few more days it will be completely red!
Remember this one? This is the one that I used in an earlier post on container gardening. I put this pot together for less than $10!
Last one is this Fountain Grass in a container on the back deck. It looks great all summer and then looks especially nice in the fall.
I hope you enjoy these pictures and that it tides you over before I post the new containers on the front porch!
