I've had these pots for about 8 months, and finally put them to good use last week. They sit on the front porch and flank the front door, and was trying to get the look of those really lush mixed planters that you see outside of Old Navy in the summer, with caladiums, petunias, and something leafy and purple that I can't remember the name of. I'm not sure if I quite got there, but it doesn't matter now because this is what they looked like last night:
The poor little petunias were scattered all over the yard, and you can see that Maddie had tons of fun doing it! The real kicker is that she was banished from the house because Wes and I were cleaning up evidence of a little present she left on the living room rug. Needless to say, it was a tough night to be a puppy parent.
I think I'm just going to give up on re-planting flowers for now, as the caladiums (those big leafy things in the back) were looking the best and Maddie seems less interested in them. Sheesh.
