I potted a fern and some impatience plants yesterday. The pot is a bit sparse now, but it will fill in soon. I had to choose shade-loving plants. When we moved here, our deck was sunny most of the day. It has a southern exposure, but the stand of trees in the back have grown, and so have a couple of trees that we planted soon after we moved here. In the sweltering heat of July and August, it’s much cooler back there now.
