more on garden shelves

There was never any question I’d leave this alone, last seen in this iteration.

The nice thing about this arrangement is that it tucks under the eaves and keeps the pots dry during winter.
Not a big deal considering our underwhelming rainy season, but still a minor consideration.

It made sense to put the planter with Senecio radicans up there, if only temporarily, since it needed the height to drape.
Doubling up the lower pots made sense for better weight distribution — and maybe because I brought home another agave (‘Little Shark’).
The olearia that was at the top now sits on the bricks at the bottom.

Cotyledon undulata ‘Silver Crown’ in a small, shallow bowl was another obvious candidate for these shelves. More reshuffling required.
I’ve started doing something I swore I never would — keeping the plant tags displayed. My memory is pure sheizen these days.
Note to self: buy more gravel mulch.

This winter (like last winter) I really want to get to work on some proper shelving.

    Deanne & Hoov, thanks for the input. I like the fish-hook senecio draping but am not too sure about that big planter at the top.
