It’s always sad to take apart planters when the plantings still look good…a little tired for sure. But look at the alyssum, petunias and salvia.
But the season has changed for sure and it’s time!
I Love playing in these planters. You can really let your imagination go wild in these. These puppies are 38″ cubes.
They belong to Janet.
Janet has an keen eye for style and more often than not, when the seasons change and it’s time for a new ‘do’, we have a discussion on a rough design idea and colour scheme. This season. She said she was ‘digging Purple’.
Bring in the purple and pink Asters, the pinky purple kale and the…Burgundy??? Mums. To fill in the gaps, I used a Watermelon coral bells. The Ivy has been in the pots since I planted it for Spring…way back in April. And don’t forget the Birch…it’s more a less a staple in Janet’s pots.
The house is grand and demands attention…and it certainly gets it. People passing like to throw out compliments. Commenting that this is their ‘favourite house’. They can’t wait to see what happens in the planters each season and they want to know the names of the plants I’m using or how do I get it to look a certain way. For a quick little second, I refrain from telling them this isn’t actually my house!!!
And even though these pots do belong to Janet. I find myself calling them ‘our pots’!!
Most of the product in the pots is from Tree Valley or Kennedy Greenhouse. Both great nurseries here in Stouffville.
I’m also digging the Purple-y colour combo’.
