Little Pot Garden

I love to have little nooks in the yard to discover as you walk around. This is my little pot garden in the shade. It has been my favorite area lately with 100 + temps. I have been working outside in the mornings or evenings only, and coming in every half hour or so, or I get wet in the sprinkler! 


It gets about 2-3 hours of sun a day. 


There is heuchera, lirope, green and gold sedum


...purple heuchera, creeping jenny,  fuzzy lambs ears and red petunias. 


Do you wet plant areas down before you take photos? I like the way it deepens all the colors and textures. The fence was wet when I started taking photos, and by the time I finished, it was dry already.

I love terra cotta pots so much I painted my outside doors terra cotta. Excellent use of terra cotta pots to make a pleasing vignette.

Love the concept. I have lots of terra-cotta pots that would look great in the shady part of my yard. Don't know why I did not think of that before. Thanks for the inspiration.
