Speaking of spectacular containers....

Deanne's not the only uber-talented container designer in this little group of ours.... Check out Cherry Ong's (PerenniallyCrazy) designs on the opposite coast! Cherry is a master at texture combos. I've been a huge admirer for years, and she just keeps getting better and better. Here are some shots from this year. Cherry says, "I am running out of space to garden so I have been planting more and more in containers (well, until I find an alternative apart from helping friends plant up their gardens and containers). These are summer containers, hanging baskets, some succulents and some snaps of the back and front yard.  Yeah, my seating area is for plants too."  Gorgeous, Cherry! 

Monday we'll see a few more shots from Cherry's garden. Then we'll go back across the country to visit Jeff for a while.... You guys are sending in such good stuff! Good thing, too, because I need each and every one of you to keep sending in photos to keep the Gardeny Goodness flowing through the colder months.... Email me! michelle@gardenygoodness.com.
