Container Gardening

For a side door at Filoli which is rarely used, I loved this idea of lining the staircase with overflowing terracotta containers. Maybe this is an idea for our own houses to bring some life to abandoned entries? I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend in this gorgeous weather and have a great 4th of July!

I can hardly contain myself at our local nursery. I will share some of our containers.

It is pretty! And we have some of that at Linderhof! I remember in one of Carolyne Roehm's books she did that at her house with pansies -- stunning!

And affordable to the pocketbook of anyone! So many ideas you have to have lots of $$$$ to make it happen -- this you don't!

IMMENSELY important those pots FLAIR.

Entering, using wider-to-narrower, creates greater depth to doorways.

Choosing a consistent pot style/color, most often, creates the best display.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
