Container Garden

It rained here yesterday for the first time in over five months (I know, crazy, huh?).  This means my plants and trees have a chance of living another day.  My in-ground plants have obviously fared this drought better than the potted ones, because their roots can go deeper in search of water, but I do still love a container garden for texture, height, and accent.  I usually stick to terra cotta because I like the combination of the orange pot and green plant, but the metal models below definitely match the feel of the future home.

I love the square shape above…you could line a walkway (like below) with metal strips like this.  Also, imagine the planter in the picture below with rusty metal instead:
