Patriotic Planter

I love pops of color on my deck garden…I thought a red white and blue theme would be good for the summer.

White periwinkles, blue salvia and red verbena with red coleus look great together.

I added some white star fish and a cobalt blue watering ball.

The pot was painted red and over the past few years the paint has worn off around the top.  Just perfect for that vintage look!

I added a reddish foxtail grass for some height and some creeping jenny (which is not creeping too much yet) to trail over the sides.

Baby Kitty approves.  You can’t turn around here without getting in the way of a cat!  I only have three (Frosty, Baby Kitty and Mama Kitty).

Your patriotic planter turned out great - super use of colour, but it's those spoons that I am in love with. They are adorable. Thanks for sharing at our party this week.

Your deck space looks great! And your patriotic planter is a nice addition. Love all the colours together. Thanks for sharing at the Motivated Monthly Garden party at Etcetorize!

This pretty patriotic planter makes me want to redo our pots on the front porch. Happy 4th!
