I do love it when folks go all out on containers for porches etc...such a beautiful welcome, Otnorot!

here are a couple of my offerings too. I also plant very very close together for the the boxes/planters...but tried to go UP and Down with the bronze plant that appears to be some kind of bulrush (so I called it "where's Moses?")

the dish of succulents has stood out in the garden for going on three years, winter snow, summer sun, and spring rains...this year, I have the Rooster Tail flower and I am delighted with it, altho it does spoil the nicely rounded look I had previously.

Beautiful planters! This is where I make my mistake ..... not stuffed enough!

They're all beautiful. I make the mistake of not filling mine enough too. Plus I've got to introduce more variety too for interest.
That succulent dish is really impressive!
