Container Gardening: Some of This Year's Winter Containers

As per my recent posts on spray-painted alliums and wreath-making, I am trying do most of my indoor and outdoor Christmas decorating with cuttings from my garden. As a part of this effort, here are some of the winter containers that I have put together this past week. I'm about half-way done and will post pictures of the others after I finish them. If you want to see how they differ from last year's winter containers, click here.

These are SO beautiful! You have a very good eye for what looks good together. I was hoping to do something like this, but the snow and ice came too soon and now it is too difficult to get into the backyard (very hilly and slippery)!

I'm new to this blog. But Wow is what I have to say.
I'm very jealous. Everything looks beautiful.
Thanks for posting the pictures.
