Dusty Bones

Today in Annuals&Perennials class we talked about Dusty Miller (Senecio cineraria)  An underrated plant with a chalky texture, silvery colour and skeletal appearance, its a perfect plant for a Halloween themed potted container!  And since its the end of the season its time to clean these annuals out of the beds anyways so I re-potted the best specimens (those not gone to seed).  Julia wrote a tutorial for this excellent idea on her blog SnarkyVegan, all I needed was a halloween container and a few skeletal pieces from the dollar store.  I also found some fabulous realistic looking severed fingers and a matching lime green container with spooky cats and bats so look for another Halloween themed container coming soon!
