Day 143 - Is It Really What's on the Inside That Counts?
I 'm going to step outside the rules here. I guess, though, since I'm the one who started this 365 Days of Container Gardening, I can in fact make up my own rules. So far, my rule that I have set upon myself is to provide a daily inspiration for the different styles and options that container gardening offers. We've looked at more than 142 different plantings that you can use to garden in a container. But today, I want to look at just a container in a garden. Empty. Just there for interest.
While visiting in Florida, I admired the interest that these empty olive jars gave to the winter landscape. Even as lovely as they are, their emptiness beacons me.
Tomorrow we'll get back to plants. Today I'm just enjoying a promise of what's to come that an empty planter whispers to me.
