Before - A sunny corner in the weed patch.    

After - Potted plants in the garden


Notes: I chose the sunniest spot in the yard to incorporate a “garden within a garden” or potted plants arranged within a planting bed. I like using colorful pots and plants within the perennial border to continue the show of color during the low bloom season. Tom Pratt and I spray-painted the galvanized planters with white paint, masked off some pinstripes and then painted on a variety of colors borrowed from the vintage towels that served as the inspiration for the garden’s color palette.
