Potful of herbs...

At the bottom of the back door steps, I have a large grey pot that I fill with annuals.  Of course, it has Johnnies during the winter.  For the summer, I usually try to do a red, white, and blue combo in honor of the Fourth of July.  (The white blob on the deck is Princess.)

This year, I did something different.   I used herbs.  There are four kinds of basil:  pesto basil (the variegated basil), African Blue basil (my favorite basil plant), lemon basil, and Thai basil.

I also put in variegated thyme and variegated marjoram.

I like the way the variegated Lirope looks with the variegated plants in the pot.

In the front is a mini petunia.  I think it is so pretty! 

Have a beautiful day!
