Day 150 - March Forward Into Spring

This beautiful bowl was adorning the streets of Raleigh, NC. It was Harley week (notice the bike in the background) and I'm sure all those biker folk were really taking in the incredible planters that lined the street. But if you needed to plant something that could take you from now thru summer, this planter filled with Angelonia sedum, dianthus, heuchera, euphorbia, and begonia would do the trick. Except for the begonia - you'd have to wait until after the first frost for that. So until then, how about planting a one gallon coral bark maple or a red twig dogwood or even just sticking the branches of a red twig where the begonia is until it is safe to plant.
