Cashing In on the Rain with Perfect Patina


This year’s rendition of the house number pots is going strong and the pink and white Impatiens seem to be loving their location on the new front deck. I also think the serious rains we had the entire month of May helped the moss grow up the sides of the pots. Just look at that patina!

While I’m loving the look this year, it almost didn’t happen. I knocked over a pot while rearranging earlier this Spring and took a big ol’ chip out of the “3” pot. I was so sad and thought it might be the end of this fun tradition, but decided to glue the thing back together and call it “character.”
