Terra Cotta Pot Edging

For the past two years now I have placed an upside down terra cotta pot border along one side of my spruce tree and deck to contain a small perennial bed I have under a tree.

The perennials include sedums, astilbes, hostas, and lady's mantle.

This will be year three on the perennials so I am expecting a good show!

Think spring everyone!

***I have received several questions about the farm implement leaning on the tree. It is a vintage seeder.

  2. What is that roller-thingy? I want one! The rule for perennials-1st year they sleep, 2nd year they creep, 3rd year they leap! New follower!
