Such a nice sight in winter!
In our wet winters, any plant that holds water droplets like jewels has my admiration!
Slugs and aphids love them too. Ain't nature (and hybridization) swell?
I came up with a couple of things before the challenge to fill the pots occupied by brugmansias during the summer:
This weekend, I brought in the last of the tender plants and filled the greenhouse, so some are spending the winter in the human house. More on that in a future post.
During the summer, the Danger Gardenette looks like this:
However, during the winter, it looks like a random collection of vacant plant stands with a few empty pots thrown in for good measure - a bit unsightly so I'd simply not visit that part of the garden in the winter or walk by and promise myself that tidying it up would be next on my list but with sufficient procrastination, it would be spring and time to move the plants back out again.
This Saturday, I decided to perhaps do something else with a few OC&K's that I had on hand and came up with these:
There are a number of potted evergreens in various parts of my garden and I thought it might be interesting to bring them together on the site of the Danger Gardenette along with the OK&C pots to create some winter interest there so here's what it looks like now:
Still needs some tweaking but at least I won't have to avert my eyes when passing this area all winter.
The Questions: As only one image can be entered in the competition, should I use one of the pots or, with a bit more work, submit the entire D.G. area or should I come up with something completely different, perhaps incorporating glass in some way? Will you be joining in the fun of the challenge? It's open to everyone and submissions will be accepted until November 1 (All Saints Day.) For more details click here.
