Urning Interest

Sometimes plants just aren't enough and a spot calls out for some type of structure. It took a while for me to appreciate empty pots in the garden (I just wanted to plant them all), but now I can easily slip a large urn or pot into a space and appreciate the interest, color and form it adds to the garden.

This pot is in one of my front beds in San Juan Capistrano and is a pleasing vertical focal point. There is a snowball viburnum and heliotrope in front of the bed.

Empty pots can look great in a garden! Like you, I've always been tempted to plant in them,but recently I've come to realize that many pots are beautiful just as they are. Like yours, on the picture!

That urn is perfect where it sits -- and your title is very clever. :)
