Containers and Planters

This past spring, when it was time to plant the pots and containers around my yard - some 40 plus, I mentioned that I was doing all of them in a white theme with lots of foliages mixed in.

As you can tell from the photos, the containers and planters have thrived. Even those plants that have no flowers, but unique textures and shapes in their foliages look great. You don’t have to use flowers to create a great look.

Most of these planters have some type of herb mixed in such as thyme, rosemary or oregano. Not only do those plants add the texture that I’m looking for, but with a few snips with a scissors, I have some great herbs to use in my cooking and grilling.

Enjoy your day.
