Here is what our potted plants looked like when we first planted them.
And, now, about a month later....
In the small pots is October Daphne. It very much looks like a succulent (which is what drew me to it at the store).
In the large pots is varying colors of Coleus. These were only $1 each, so we chose about six different plants for each pot. The colors are so bright and beautiful (and have changed slightly since we first planted them). They simply scream fall and are only getting more beautiful as the season unveils.
The pots only took two coats of spray paint and the white really looks crisp and fresh against the beautiful plants.
This is just one of the many reasons fall is my favorite season. Such beautiful things grow and flourish in the cooler air of autumn.
