That was how I put together this beautiful container garden. I have to admit, at first I was annoyed, because the garden center didn't have many things designed to hold water, and so I was forced to settle for this rather utilitarian plastic planter. I had been envisioning half-barrels with single perfect water lilies, so this was a decided step down.
What I realized, though, once I put together container and the plants I'd chosen, those that enjoy having their feet wet, was that I had a microcosm of a beautiful riverbank. Because of the fronds, it felt very Egyptian to me, so I promptly played up that aspect. Can you see the little marble camel lounging in the shade?

I'm still dreaming of that half-barrel and water lily, though!
