my planters - through the seasons

Our house, when we purchased it (almost 2 years ago), was a complete fixer upper. We had to pretty much gut the inside and have been "working" on it ever since.  Unfortunatley (for us), most of the projects we've had to do are big and costly....which makes me appreciate when I am able to make some nice improvements that are easy, quick and budget friendly. 

More specifically, I have found that I am actually pretty good at selecting and arranging plants in the two big planters by my front door. I originally bought the planters to try and distract some of the attention off of our (horrible, peeling, outdated) front door that desperately needs to be replaced. I found them on clearance last winter at a landscape supply place by my house. Originally $125 each, I got them for $40 bucks a pop!

As luck would have it, as I was going through my photo albums, I realized that I had actually snapped a few photos of my planters during different seasons. I like the arrangements because it's a little different than what you usually see while driving through my neighborhood and they really "pop" on our front stoop. What do you think??? Not bad, huh??
