diminished plant stock. All the same, I recently was
there on a mission to find some hardy fillers for my planters.
I start each spring with my beloved pansies & violas...which
tend to hang in there, but with certain disdain for hot days.
They begin to straggle over the edges & yellow....blooming
with their little faces all the while. So I grab whatever
annual looks like it will take my planters into fall. Sedge is
my new favorite...a tall brown grass with curly tops. Lettuce
in a deep burgundy will work...as will Asparagus Fern.
I dig them in around the yellow violas. Smooshing in
some Thyme for good measure. This vintage metal
ice cream chair was missing a seat....an enamelware
pan (with several rusted holes for drainage) is perfect.
Tucked a bunny in with the plantings....why of course!
It does make me a tad sad when the summer plantings begin
to round the bend on their way to Autumn~~ but I do so
love that season, too!
How are your gardens? Do you fill in too?
