As I mentioned in Monday's post, the time came to pull the trio of succulent dish planters indoors.
Rather than just have empty metal posts sticking out of the ground all winter I planted up a new trio of dishes with winter hardy plants.
Each dish has a nice big chunk of black mondo grass combined with a small pot of light green Scotch moss and a selection of carnivorous plants that were previously living in dish planters plunged into/above the stock tank pond.
Nothing terribly earth shattering, but it will be interesting to see how the carnivorous plants do in these dishes over the winter.
In other container changes, since the shade pavilion is now enclosed as a green house for the winter, I moved the fern bowl over to this corner. It's hard to see, but there on one of the paver squares...
It seems like there's more room this year, but I'm sure that's just an illusion which will vanish once it gets really cold—and more things are moved in.Shout-out to this Agave sisalana ‘Variegata’ pup my brother sent me in July, I pulled it from it's spot in one of the drive way stock tanks to pot it up and protect it in the greenhouse, of course I stopped to admire it's good looks.
The view of the patio is sadly empty...cause all the containers have moved elsewhere.
Here's the greenhouse view from the patio...
That Erica arborea is just so gorgeous!
Secret Garden Growers in September, I thought they made a great combination with the leaves from my Quercus dentata 'Pinnatifida’ (Cutleaf Emperor Oak).
