Southern Living Inspired Spring Container Garden

May usually has me planning and gathering gardening ideas for the two container's that flank my front door on my porch. When I ran across this picture on Design Indulgence. I knew what I was going to do this year!

This beautiful combo was at the 2012 Southern Living Idea House in Senoia, Georgia last year.

I am absolutely head over heels in love with this combination! The colors are cool which is a welcome relief in the garden on a hot summer day. Don't you feel cooler just looking at it? The best part is it only involves three plants: 1 Kimberly Queen fern, 1 soft blue hydrangea and 1 lime green sweet potato vine. How can I mess that up? 

Well, guess what? The gardening gods were looking out for me yesterday when I spotted all three at my local Meijer supermarket. It was meant to be! I quickly placed them in my cart, along with a fresh bag of potting mix and headed to the checkout counter. I couldn't help but notice how beautiful they looked together in the cart. I didn't even bother picking up whatever else I needed. I had total tunnel vision! 

They are patiently waiting on my porch for me to clean the containers they will be planted in. I have the perfect containers to complete my copy-cat version :)

Stay tuned!
