My Strawberry Pot

Years and years ago, my in-laws lived in Texas near the Mexican border. On one shopping trip across the border, they brought home two good sized, clay strawberry pots. Probably about ten years ago, they gave me one of them. I have never actually planted strawberries in it; but each year, I do plant it full of flowers. I have tried several different combinations throughout the years; but I have enjoyed this year's display the best. I planted each of the small holes on the sides with trailing lobelia, and placed three red calibrachoa in the top. I just love how the flowers have filled out.
