Here's why. I've caught myself dreaming up combinations before when I'm trying to find my next set of design ideas.

Container gardening flower choices are UNLIMITED, though! Where to start, what to choose, how's it going to look?

I then inevitably head toward a container gardening magazine and start there. Photos are such great stimulation for the old brain, and gardeners who make it to that magazine can usually put together a pretty good list of ideas for container gardening.

Did you enjoy that? We loved bring it to you.

We took the trouble to label those container gardening pictures, because on most other sites, images aren't labeled with what makes up the design.

I'm left trying to figure out what that peculiar looking plant is in the back, or left wondering... "What is that making up that centerpiece?"
