Planting the large containers in this city garden/outdoor room I designed and installed last year brightens the early spring garden. Any day now the spring flowering bulbs will bloom in bursts of color. Soon after the earliest flowering shrubs will add to the chorus. The hellebore are blooming now. The blue, white, dark pink pansies highlighted with the pussywillow branches greets and cheers you as you enter the garden and adds a sweet fragrance. The sitting area on its’ brick carpet will soon draw you in the warmer spring days to come, from there you can see the containers as well. A little birdsong completes the sensory experience we all crave after a winter cooped up inside!
