What a Brilliant Idea! Hanging Gutter Garden!

In my general perusing of the web I came to find this wonderful garden and home site  On it I saw a brilliant idea that I simply have to try in my own home garden.  Check it out and let me know if you think it's a great way to get more space to grow things.  I think this type of set up would be great for strawberries or lettuce and hope to have it set up for this fall's garden.

Annuals Can be Perennials in South Florida

Back from the dead, this lovely group of Impatiens was planted in the spring of 2010.  By the end of August the heat was too much for them and they pretty much wilted away.  Forgotten and neglected during the rest of the summer and the occassional cold spells we had during our winter, I thought  I would find a plant when I went to clean out the container. However this little beauty thrived and has returned to life this spring. 

And I thought Impatiens were annuals... lol!
