Day 6 - A Guest Container

Randomly throughout the 365 Days of Container Gardening I will host a Guest Container - a container planting that I've seen on a garden expedition that needs recognition. Today's Guest Container is actually one of a set of windowboxes outside a store in downtown Charleston, SC. Filled with Acorus grass, boxwood, Sedum Autumn Fire, Sedum Angelina, Purple cabbage, pansies, and what looks like Strawflower (Helichrysum or Bracteantha depending on who you talk to). There seems to be something else in there that I can't identify. (I was riding a carriage when I took this picture so I couldn't get too close.) Hope this inspires for winter planting in your hayrack planter.

My biggest challenge will be taking the time everyday to post! I do around 800 containers a year, try to take photos of most of them, so there is plenty of material to draw from :). Finally some of my neglected photos will find a spot of recognition.

I'm loving these shares Barbara. The structure and that basket arrangement are just stunning!

Happy Sharing - Bren
