Today’s planting, a light pink foxglove surrounded by ranunculus, ivy, ghost ferns, lupines, hellebores, hyacinths, spurge, and nemesia.
I am so ready for spring! We had a wonderful day at our favorite nursery and then planting a few spring containers. We used perennials because they are gorgeous, full of soft colors and texture, and will be able to handle this unpredictable weather. To give height we used forsythia. These large containers become their own individual gardens.
I love these big iron containers; they tend to eat the plants up! Meaning I can never have enough fun material to use each season. This time of the year we used mums, ornamental peppers, assorted cabbages, and a variety of perennials. I accented with interesting wooden accent sticks and bittersweet.
