My poor old chair should have been thrown away this year, but with a hammer and a few nails, I think I can get one more year out of it. I planted it with purple petunia, blackie sweet potato vine, variegated vinca, and orange calla lilies. So I won't forget that I planted the callas, I took the picture with the label at the back. I hope they grow and flower as this container really needs the punch of orange color. The sweet potato vine and the vinca will grow fast and all the way to the ground. A major pet peeve of mine is seeing chairs planted without plants that hang down. I just hate to see the bottom of the pot sticking out, or, in my case, the screening that covers the bottom. Please, please if you plant a chair, cover the mechanics! It will make or break your whole arrangement. I can't tell you how many chair plantings I have seen that would be quite wonderful if only the bottom of the pot was not sticking out.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
