As I look out the door to the deck I watch the raindrops on the creek. In between the door and the creek is the deck with those plants that will stay outside all winter (or until they are done producing).
In the same pot as the basil is Tri-colored Sage- this will be clipped throughout the winter for culinary delights.
Next to the herb bowl are a couple window boxes with lettuce --The 'Red Sails' is really coming along.
The Sedum is showing a change of color that matches the clay container it is in..
After I took the containers apart earlier this fall I put the Hedera helix 'Pink-n-Very Curly' in its own container and put it in a bit more sun. What a change! The leaves are really showing some of that pink color.
Still hungry? The cherry tomatoes are still growing and putting forth fruit.
Last but not least-- a miniature rose. I used to think I needed to bring this in for the winter, though I don't know why!! It has lived outside since 2003 and been very happy.
