New succulent container, just planted

Kevin Kelly shares the transition of his garden from one season to the next.

"As you know, it has been a cool, wet spring in Harrisburg, PA (and most of the mid-Atlantic). This last week saw temperatures jump 30 degrees. Literally overnight. This marked the end of the spring bloomers, and the garden is beginning its transition to summer. Containers have been planted, along with my annual beds. Alliums are in bloom as well as our native Physocarpus (Ninebark). Much of the interest in my garden is based on leaf color, as well as the interplay of textures. I have finished most of my spring activities: new plants in place, existing beds edited, and a brand new rock garden. Hope you enjoy, Kevin."
