Cool container combo

This is my bronze fennel in flower – the one that fed the black swallowtail caterpillar for a week or so. I planted it in a container with some mini dahlias, which also have clear yellow blooms.

Here’s a look at the dahlias. The container, which looks like real concrete and is, in my opinion, a perfect color and a classic design, came from Marshalls – $19.00. I should have bought more of those. It’s light as a feather, too.

Back to the PLANTS. The fennel is about three feet tall now, having fully recovered from the swallowtail predation. It needs to be staked, because it leans toward the sun and tends to get a bit off center. I will leave you with a last look.

I won’t be posting for a couple of weeks, but I’ll be back with more  stories. That container! OMG!
