Why I didn't think of this sooner I don't know...
I had been wanting "something" for this spot for awhile, something that was preferably tall and unusual but not so tall that it would overwhelm the wimpy rose next to it.
There is this fantastic black glazed pot that I planted Angelonia and Lotus vine in that didn't work for me anywhere because the vine was too long and trailing.
I also had this old concrete birdbath stand that was stuffed in a corner out by the alley garden. See where I am going with this? Yep! I set the pot on top of the stand in this spot. I'm loving it. The black pot adds a little punch and the vine has plenty of room to trail down!
Have any of you figured out a "solution" (wow, I feel like I am using a lot of quotation marks today for some reason, LOL) to something in the garden that has been bothering or annoying you?
