    Bought these concrete urns last evening, today painted and planted, they are super heavy needed here in FL. with strong storms and high winds
    They are at our back door... You like?

    No, I don't like--I love them! Wow, you did that painting? Great highlighting of the relief. And the plantings are perfect--simple, but eye-catching. WOW!

    Impressive, they look great on each side of the doorway. Excellent paint job! I like the color.

    Just perfect Susie. I'd have put them at the front door so that everyone could admire them.

    Hi Susie... haven't seen you here since Christmas. I totally love the "cool" feeling to your home... and those urns are a perfect fit. If I were in your neighborhood... I'd be walking by all the time soaking in the beauty too. :stew2:

    To designshare...Absolutely not, we live on a nice quiet cul de sac.. and would never hide our beautiful home behind anything!!! like some do with berms...no way! you have not seen our huge island and more! on the right just out of view is a big magnolia tree,beyond that our island/berm with palm tree's and more, and the tree in front is a big holly tree, with a garden area underneath. you certainly do not know FL. or zone 10..we do not plant maple tree's or hydrangia's. we know our plants and all about landscaping, have done our own for years...in back we have a huge live oak flanked by 2 Orchid tree's, on the left side another planted area with 2 crepe myrtles and 2 big norfolk pine trees. As for privacy we have no home on either side of us, and a big lot.. so NP our street is private, being on a cul de sac...
