CDLV Garden Chores II

It rained today, which, I'm so not going to complain about. But, it did keep me from getting out there and doing the work I wanted to do. 

A couple of years ago I picked up those terracotta chimney liners and decided to use them in the garden. Then, seeing as how convenient it was to have annuals planted in them, I started using more clusters of pots for ease and interest.

Plants in this pic: Dwarf Alberta Spruce (far right);Tuberous Begonia's in pink, Creeping Jenny (tall pot left); Sedum (tall pot right); (some wild pink Columbine popped it's way in there, too!) Boxwood (medium pot right); Red Asiatic lilies (left of medium pot); Pansies in yellow (small terracotta pot front); Stella D'oro lilies (front right).

I'll have more pics of the garden all week, as I get out there and try my best to get it back to beautiful, with a special reveal of the newest garden element, which is a re-envisioned piece of what we used to have. Any guesses?
