Secret Gardens and THE 100 YEAR OLD MINT
It's NOT All Vegetables and Fruits
...I also plant other greenery.
Yesterday, I spent some time in the morning, at a Garden Center, and picked up a few more flowers, for these 4 planters, surrounding the fountain. Each planter has a tall Fuscia, with two different Petunia, one Dark BLACK (below, right), and one, a deep Violet (below, left in the planter). In front, is a flowing hanging Bacopa, in white.
Below: Many Varieties of Hosta, shade loving, and also, make great cover for all the rabbits.
The Hosta middle, left of the image, has a small warren underneath, that momma bunny had her little baby bunnies in!
The original Mint Planter, left, in Blue, was divided, half left in it, and half moved to the large Terra Cotta planter. The two smaller Terra Cotta planters are cuttings I started mid February, for Mint. Check out THIS MINT POST! for the story of HOW THIS 110 year old MINT CAME TO AMERICA!
