Favorite Container (not the plants)

Postby toomanyanimals » Mar 06, 2007 8:10 pm

I'm always looking for unusual containers at garage sales.
I've found a couple, but thought I would post a picture of my favorite one to date.

That is cool. I wish I could find stuff like your pig at garage sales. The only things I seem to find are dirty baby clothes and mismatched pairs of shoes. I love the semp in there with it. Kind of makes it look like a crazy hedgehog. :P

I love that! Not only is the container great, the semp is perfect in it. Sometimes finding just the right planting makes a huge difference for effect.

Beautiful, spacious deck Jane, with plenty of room. Your containers look so lush and healthy. I noticed the photos are from 2005 and wonder if you have some from last year to share?

I have about given up on sweet potato vine myself, Snow. Never catch sight of the bugs but the leaves end up peppered with holes. :(
