Picket Fence Planter - Week 2

Success... but next year I'll pick different flowers. Ones with more color, ones with different heights. And NO WAX BEGONIAS! Double impatiens, dragon wing begonias... but no wax begonias! Other than that, the rain has added much needed moisture and this part sun/part shade planter is loving it!

As I mentioned in my first Picket Fence Planter post, the remaining flowers were planted in a crock I purchased from an auction. The crock does not have drainage holes, so I gathered rocks from around our property to put in the bottom.

Again, I'd choose different flowers, but for now I'm anxious to see if the rocks solve the drainage issue.

Since all this began, I have discovered Creeping Jenny... a trailing green plant perfect for planters and ground covers. What makes this find even better: one of my very good friends is named Jenny! I guess you'd have to know her to realize how funny this actually is!

We have had so much rain over the past week; the Lamppost Flower Bed is patiently waiting...

Pin It!
