This container is a copper liner for a window box. I found it years ago, at a flea market.
It's had many incarnations. Right now, it's holding some dusty miller,
that was used on the Christmas dinner table. I know these will get too large for this, but for now,
they're looking good.
Also looking good, are the pansies. This one is in a nice container my friend Jann gave us.
This pot held plumbago, purslane, and a lantana last summer.
The pansies took over, when everything froze.
Pansies have such pretty faces.
Even the white ones have cute faces. They're just a bit quieter.
This pink one is quiet, too. Such a delicate little thing.
Violas are probably my favorite. They have a lot of personality in a smaller face.
These are in a wooden planter box.
This was that planter last winter. None of these plants made it through the hot, hot summer.
This blue water globe...a Christmas gift from our daughter's family...really pops in the lettuce bowl.
This pot has had several different things planted in it.
But, none have done as well as this lettuce.
As you see, I like containers. They can add some color, even when there are no blooms.
Anything that will hold soil can hold a plant. This old wheelbarrow holds some agave lophantha.
That little one on the left is constantly being pulled up by the deer. I just keep sticking it back in.
Here's another A. lophantha in this lovely planter. This planter's first life was as a firepit.
As with the wheelbarrow...holes were punched in the bottom for drainage.
Some people find containers too hard to keep watered.
I find them to be extra interest in the garden...no matter what season it is.
We have them all around the place. If I had to guess...there will be more.
