Living room Garden

My friend Virginia sent me photos the other day of a planting we did two years ago at the Ohio State Learning Gardens. When we were both students, we worked in the gardens together, and started a tradition of whimsical, furniture-based plantings.

This is what we did for 2008:
Coleus on the couch watching TV next to the Canna Grandfather clock
Begonia end table and more of the couch
Virginia herself, relaxing on the sedum-ajuga rug next to the thyme chair.

Last year we were both too busy to do a planting, but we're getting ready to do one for this year come May!

Wow! That looks fun! Talk about a natural living area. :) The rug looks so inviting.Creative container gardening really gives you the opportunity to endless imagination and expression. I hope to see more of your posts on this. Have fun!

That just makes one smile. Love the rug and if only I could find thyme to sit in a chair. LOL

Wonderful post. I've seen people do 'plant chairs' before, but never a whole living room. How wonderful. A whole section of my lawn is turning into a bank of thyme. A beaufiful and comfortable rug.
