Last Spring I purchased two large, heavy ceramic planters on sale for $24 each at IKEA. I love the color and shape. Sadly, they have sat empy all summer.
I recently found two pretty red, spikey plants reasonably priced at the garden center. They weren’t named, and I don’t know what type of plants they are, but they work well with the planters. The red of the plants really stands out next to our green exterior.
