Terracotta creatures are all over the landscape these days. Assemble your own pot people or pot pets from cracked terracotta containers you have around. String the pots together with a wire through the drainage holes to form torso, arms, and legs, and use a larger pot for the head. Because this is a garden feature, you'll want to use plants to finish off your creation. The pot person shown here holds a bouquet of basil and has hair made of creeping baby's-breath. The fur on the pot pooch is blue fescue and moss. Such terracotta treasures are available at garden centres if creating your own seems too intimidating.
