I am always on the lookout for creative decorative outdoor planter ideas. I find them on walks around my neighborhood, on garden tours, at botanical gardens, even at some of my local nurseries. Besides the endless array of foliage and bloom choices, the containers themselves can also play into the look – or fade into the background, letting the plants get all their attention. It all depends on the look you are going for. Either way, I look forward to putting together my own planters each spring.
