My generous friend, Deborah, gave me some stuff from her garden when she and her family moved off to Mississippi. This was one thing she gave me. A great pot with some really pretty ivy and other surprises growing in it. I planted a purple fountain grass in it and put it on my front walkway. It's very happy. It has taken the ivy a little time to get used to the direct sun though, but still looks great. Oh, and Happy Birthday Deb!
