Now don't expect these 2012 photos to look anything like that post! These annuals were just planted, and none of the perennials are in bloom yet. The previous stepladder post contained July photos.
Here is the newly planted stepladder:
On the bottom rung, two pink Angelonia Angelface. Not even blooming yet! Below the bottom rung are purple trailing verbena.
On the third rung, (I place a plant on every other), is a Superbells calibrachoa with a small funnel planted with hen and chicks.
The top step has two Diamond Frost in a terra cotta pot.
The (not a step) step on the opposite side of the stepladder has a vintage lunch box with two Gold Dust Mercardonia.
Barely in bloom!
Certainly not beautiful yet, but I will show the stepladder again when it has filled in!
