PlantTherapy: Here Come the Flowerboxes

Every weekend I see people walking off with all sorts of flats of plants from the Greenmarket. And now that spring bulbs have faded and the danger of frost is gone, the flower beds are beginning to fill out with color and it's fun to see what people are coming up with.

I saw these two planters last week and really like the height and the playful feeling they planters have - like Where the Wild Things Are...

This planter has just three elements: bamboo, moss, and coleus. The bamboo branches have been clipped off except for the top to form the large clump. I can only imagine how good this will look when the coleus fills in. I have to admit I felt like a kid when I stood behind them and looked out at the street...
