I definitely got my mega-dose of vitamin D today—I took off work early and was outside more than four hours. Inspired by fellow Austin garden blogger Pam’s feathergrass-in-colorful-pot trick, I did my own version today. I thought it was going to be a quick project, but once I got going I realized I first needed to do some MAJOR rosemary thinning to open up the space by the front porch steps, where I also planted a bunch of leadwort plumbago.
Upright in the front, we have a weird concrete relic (birdbath?) found half buried in the backyard ages ago. Today I filled it with some rocks and a graphite-colored pot in which I planted three anonymous succulents.
