Hi all, I wanted to be in on the Fall Mantle party but since I have no mantle I thought I would decorate my Potting Bench.
At first I had only a few plants but since this is my bench and I look at it I figured I would go all out. This potting bench really is center stage and is in full view of the living room so I want a lot of color!
I started out with my painted shovel on the middle area..
My Ronde de Nice squash take the place of pumpkins, but the sign I painted on the top shelf was enough orange along with the orange geraniums.
I decided I liked the shovel down lower but that left an empty place that I thought needed a bit of filling. The metal bucket has a Tiger’s Eye black eyed susan in it, I like that they stay shorter and I have wanted one of these for awhile now, I found one just today!
I know this photo is a bit tilted, so sorry.
I filled the empty spot with a purple succulent type plant that a friend gave me, I am still trying to find out what it is actually called.
Here is a close up so if anybody can tell me what it is called I would really appreciate the info!
(I really am trying to get into it)
