Sedums and Other Junk

I have become increasingly fascinated with sedums. For almost 15 years now I have struggled with what types of plants to put on the deck. The deck faces south and has no shade at all. I really enjoy working in my flowers, but the fact that I don't "sweat" makes it hard to work outside. So I have been working at acquiring lots of pots for my deck and do my gardening in the evening. A couple of years ago, I got a start of a sedum from a friend and have been hooked ever since.

I planted up some of my junque finds. This watering can I got for $5.00. The strainers I picked up for probably fifty cents. The blue pan, I got for a couple of bucks at an antique mall. The bigger container to the right has a sifter-type bottom, and I have no idea what it is. So, I am working on getting a good collection of sedums together.
