Herbs in containers

I really enjoy my containers, especially the glazed terracotta ones. They survive our winters well (not chipping like regular terracotta) and provide an attractive array of colors in my container medleys: 1) near the potting bench and 2) near the bird feeders.

This container, with relatively young plants of Spanish lavender, evergreen thyme, and silver thyme, survived last winter nicely, and looks cheery in the evening light. 

And since I've cropped some stray winter annuals out of the photo, it looks even nicer!
