    Strange Finds

    Strange Finds Flower Planter Pots

    Strange Finds

    Now don’t laugh, but last year the neighbor lady asked if I knew what this “certain” red pot that I had sitting on my deck was. I said nope, I got it free at a yard sale and it was perfect for what I needed to plant.

    Small pot, perfect for a little arrangement….anyone? Give up? It is an old enamel pee pot – strange finds.

    Wash Tub Planter

    Wash Tub Planter

    Wash day?  Nah, planting day.  The old wash board adds extra visual interest to the wash tub planter.  Planted with yellow daisies, trailing vines, coleus and brightly colored pansies.  This space has light shade and all the plants are tolerant of shade.

    If you plant coleus, remember they make excellent and hearty houseplants if you need to take them in for winter.

    Suitcase Planter

    Suitcase Planter Planted With Succulent Garden Plants

    Suitcase Planter

    Looking for a use for an old suitcase? This suitcase planter may just spark some ideas

    An old wooden suitcase planter is just the right touch for any garden.  The best planter ideas come from something someone else in getting rid of.  Seriously.

    The next time someone asks you if you want something the are getting rid of, ask yourself; would it make a creative planter?

    A little dirt, pebbles, some succulents and you have a creative addition to your garden beds. The nice thing about using containers for your succulents is that you can move them around the yard. Also, for people like myself; I can bring them indoors before winter.
