Container garded idea: bright painted wood

painted wood container

Spotted this one outside Raoul, a home and textiles shop in Santa Barbara. I love the idea of a bright paint color instead of the usual black, white, or dark green. I think a bright paint color calls for something happy and carefree like lavender, and definitely an upright grower so you can show off the container. The other great idea here: instead of waiting forever for a topiary to shape up, underplant a citrus with lavender or rosemary.
