“The real fun in selecting container recipes for your home starts with imagining where they will add the most beauty and style to your garden. Think of the containers as you would pieces of furniture or accessories inside your home. In some cases, they are the center of attention; the first thing you notice when you walk in a room. Or, they can work quietly to blend and harmonize with other elements of a room’s décor. In that same way, you can place containers to play either starring or supporting roles in developing the look of your garden.” ~ P. Allen Smith

    Everything looks beautiful, it makes me want to plant up even more containers.
    I’m growing that same red celosia next to Fireworks grass in full sun. It looks amazing and draws your eye in from down the road.

    You don’t worry about the “spinyness” of the agaves since you have lots of people coming through?

    I love all combinations specially grass in the Conantainer and white combo coloration contrast to rugged wood. So~~~ pretty!

  32. Gina Friend on February 20, 2022 at 12:14 am

    I like the groupings of color in various sections. Its classy. I’m very much that way myself. I was happy you moved after it had started. All the people were distracting, hanging out, to be seen on video 😂. Thanks!
