If there's anything you all have learned about me over the last couple of years... is that I'm not very patient! So... instead of prepping and painting either clay/terra cotta pots... or even plastic ones, I decided to cheat. Went to the dollar store... and now this is what's sitting on the bench now. bench now ( photo / image / picture from cherylad's Garden ) The colorful ones are "picnic bowls". Had Hubby drills some holes. Put in some Kalanchoe and some of Hairy Wandering Jew. The big green "tote" one also needed holes drilled and put the Sweet William in it. The other day, Hubby brought home this watering can that he picked up off the side of the road. Come to find out it had a hole in the bottom... so I just made more and turned it into a planter. I stuck one of the zillion Coreopsis in there just for the photo. Oh yeah... and that's a Sassafras tree it's next to, surrounded by some orange Daylilies.
