Porch Planters

Before:

Planter one with its brand new inhabitants…

…and planter two (pre-woodruff).

These two photos were taken May 12. Nothing got planted last year because I’d hardly managed to move myself, but this year I decided to usurp David’s planters for my own selfish purposes. He did not object.

After:

I’m impressed by how far the fuchsia vine has stretched, and the coleus is almost unrecognizable. The begonia constantly produces amazing red-orange flowers.

This one is full of mint, vines, sweet woodruff, and a little forget-me-not that hides in the very center. The woodruff is my favorite, with its funny star-shaped leaflet crowns.
