Potted plant collections

I'm starting to intersperse groups of small potted plants around the yard.

Here I have two basils in two different pots and a tiny succulent garden.  I haven't had a lot of success with succulents (besides Jade which has to be the easiest plant not to kill).  My succulent wreath died pretty quickly....I think there needed to be less moss and more dirt or just more space for the roots to attach.  I'm going to try it again but with a succulent box that has more layers of soil for the roots to attach.

I have this vision of herbs and flowers in various pots all over the garden.  Goodwill sometimes has good garden containers for about 90% less than Osh or Home Depot.  I also want to get some metal buckets and drill holes in the bottom....but that will be a project for another day.

Today I'm finishing up the blinds/curtain projects for the upstairs of our house!
