I found this cute herb planter tucked full of pretty flowers.
I enjoy sitting on the porch on a cool day.
We put some ornamental grass and sweet potato vine in the planter.
Here is a funny story about this plant. It is an ANTIQUE! Yes, it really is. When I was about 14 years old, I walked down to a nearby plant store and bought this plant. I carried it home in a tiny dime store sack, worried all the way that the wind that day would break a leaf. Well , here it is 35 years later. Over the years we have had 2 or 3 different dogs who have chewed it down to just a stalk. My grandson has pulled leaves off it, and I have not treated it as nicely as I should have. But it is TOUGH. I plan to repot it this year and give it some new soil. If I do it would probably die from shock.
I have 2 hydrangeas we transplanted from my parents house. They didn't look too good last year, but they are blooming this year. Hopefully they will make it.
Joey made this garden bench for me several years ago. In fact, he made 3 of them. We planted
some Knock-Out roses in the planters. They smell good. I may make a more permanent rose bed later in the year, but they didn't cost any more than a pot full of bedding plants would have. This is where I sit and watch Jackson play on the swingset. Need to get some grass growing here.
