I found your blog through Blotanical. Welcome to our community of garden bloggers! I like your header picture of the pink rose and frost. I think it is very beautiful. I like this planter box too and all those on the sidebar. What do you call this plant?

header flower is a camellia japonica. This photo was taken during a
rare snow at Calloway Gardens, Georgia during their January Southern
Garden Symposium. Thanks for the kind words! Most of these planters are
ones that either I or my staff planted in the developments where I
work. This planter box is a wild combination of Chenille plant (the red
woolly worm looking plant), blue callibrachoa, "Black pearl" ornamental
pepper, variegated garlic, and bleeding heart vine. One of my
co-workers called this my schizophrenic planter! I loved that there was
some plant in the container "speaking to me" all summer long :).
