Container Gardening Before Summer


While I love bright-faced pansies, it was still so cold the day I took the winter decoration of evergreens out of the container gardens and window boxes that I couldn't bring myself to plant them.  And then it got below freezing a few nights later and I was glad I didn't.  This idea was in a store front on Main St. and the restful, contemplative aura of these planters suited my mood perfectly.  The yard took on a new appreciation as verdant moss, smooth rocks, fungus covered bark and twisting twigs became treasures to use as decoration.
