I’m starting to pull my containers out of the shed and place them around my patio, and I’m dreaming up new plant combos every day. It’s almost time to plant them up, and like every spring, I’m nervous that I won’t be able to fulfill my visions. But come August, it all seems to work itself out. This was one of my container vignettes from 2007. I can’t wait to dig my hands into some potting soil! BTW, that spectacular coleus is my favorite, and I use it every single year. It’s called both ‘Texas Parking Lot’ and ‘Alabama Sunset’.
