Winter containers are tough to make look good when the weather is as bad as it's been this year; I was thrilled to see some of the containers "coming into their own" this morning! This first one is "Ultima Morpho" pansies planted in a little rustic basket. I like the contrast of the very rustic container in such a formal setting by the pool.
The container below is in the middle of a wooded area, surrounded by camellias that have passed and azaleas that have not yet started to bloom. It's actually a new container, but I think it looks ancient. Patti "tweaked" the flowers a couple of days ago, mixing the newly sprouted daffodils with more of the "Morpho's".
This one is the "Jenny Brook" wallflower, in a little terra cotta pot with "Antique Shades" violas.
The pot below is in the lower garden, and the cryptomeria and ivy have been there for a few seasons. The pansies add just a little burst of fun color to a very formal arrangement, I think.
