More Pretty Planters



I've told you all about how I love to plant in anything "non-traditional" - well, here is another idea - a coal bucket. I've had this one for years - it was painted this pretty gardener's green when I bought it and I finally decided to part with it. It caught the eye of one of my sweet customers, Rhonda, and she gave it a NEW, happy home.

The second snapshot is of an old enamelware rectangular pan - not for sure of it's original purpose - but it is much prettier filled with lush blooms of dianthus, verbena, phlox and geraniums.

Always encouraging you to "THINK OUTSIDE THE POT". Happy Plantin' dear friends!!!

Love all your ideas. I also plant in my coal bucket and in an old gavanzied tub and whatever else I can find that is deep enough. Thanks for reminding me to be on the look out for more! hugs, Linda

I love all your ideas for thinking outside the pot! I find myself thinking more along those lines here lately! I need to watch for more things to use because I really need to work on my front porch!
