This birdcage is amazing.  Plant your overwintered geraniums in early spring and by midsummer, the entire birdcage is flowing with greens and flowers.

Wash Tub & Washboard

Wash day?  Nah, planting day.  The old washboard adds to the visual interest.

Yellow daisies, trailing vines, coleus, and brightly colored pansies.  This space has light shade and all the plants are tolerant of shade. If you plant coleus, remember they make excellent and hearty houseplants if you need to take them in for winter.
