Planters

Now that the the summer months are knocking on our door, I am thinking outdoor living. I used to crowd our porches with planters. But right around July, I would get sick of watering all the flowers. Before my kids, it was easy, but now with three, I really don’t have the time or memory to water them. So the last few years I started to deplete the planters. I am down to 6, and 4 of them are ferns. If that isn’t low maintenance I don’t know what is. But, I love the look of planters with flowers greeting the homeowners’ home. Some of these caught my eye.

  1. i like to use ornamental grasses and hastas, they so hardy and low maintenance! especially when you don’t have a lot of time for watering!!!

  2. I am so with you! I have one catcus- an Easter Cactus- that I have surprising not killed. Only because it will survive if I forget to water it!!!! Why can’t plants remind us?
