This is my second white planter, with my lucky Chinese cat standing guard. As well as the conifer and some ivy, I have honeysuckle growing up bamboo poles at the back. It smells lovely when the back door is open during summer evenings.
I really like the acid green of these conifers so there's another one the other side of the back door. My small collection of herbs (chives, mint, thyme, curry plant, sage) grows here too, where they are easily accessible, although the big bay tree, more sage, santolina and rosemary are by the back gate.
I liked the way the sun shone through the Yucca leaves. I can just see the blue flowers of the vinca beyond, and the hawthorne hedge just starting to leaf. When it's fully in leaf you can't see the houses behind us.
