Winter Still Life

I'm always playing around with this grouping of containers in front of the garage, probably because I can see it from the house.  The containers are mostly prototypes that I didn't put into production or odd troughs that were leftovers for one reason or another.  The three small round ones at the front are made from extra hypertufa leftover from a casting session, kind of like how I make a cinnamon and sugar cookie for the kids when I have leftover dough after rolling pie crust.

The evergreen plants in these containers are tough customers: a couple junipers, a chamaecyparis, rosemary, an erica, and a helianthemum. 

Yeah, I'm blocking two of my garage doors.  I've still got two others that open.
