I've been busy pinning various dish gardens on Pinterest, figuring if my own artistic abilities fail me, I can imitate the layout of one of them. I actually put my first together based on a dish garden I pinned on Pinterest, here. It's not exactly the same plants, but they have the same shape and look.
My second was just free-style, me-style. I think I may have a tendency to overstuff. I'm hoping that little round succulent at the bottom with the orange-yellow flowers looks good with the orange-yellow of the dish.
|The bright orange and yellow pottery dish all planted up. The bright colors of the dish aren't so obvious now, though.|
My third was kind of a cross between imitation and creativity.
I still need to cover the soil with some pretty gravel. Hmm...I do need to fill up two more of these dishes for the garden, so when I go to buy the gravel, I'll just have to buy some more cute little succulents. Oh, bother!
