Because so many of you (okay, two, but who’s counting?) have been clamoring for more detail about the Garden Club Luncheon the other weekend, I thought I’d show you what I came up with for the front porch urns in preparation for the big event.
The front porch has an eastern exposure and isn’t blasted with lots of sun, so that opens up the wonderful word of shade plants for me. I decided not to use flowers and to create a more foliage-themed planting. My choices:
Hosta: I dug two different varieties out of the yard and divvied them up in each urn.
Hellebore: I love the interesting foliage and the faded soft color of its bloom. Makes an interesting addition in any shade plant container.
Heuchera: I am increasingly Heuchera-smitten. Each urn was planted with two heuchera – one in chartreuse and one sort of soft brick tone. (I could never have a job writing for the J. Peterman catalog with my ineptitude at describing colors!)
Et voila: The 4-H Urn is complete:
But wait, we have Hosta, Hellebore, and Heuchera. Where’s the fourth “H”?
Why the Hedgehog, of course!
And thanks for reading,
