WOW! WOW! WOW!

I'm feeling like you posted this for a reason: after viewing my "Box-O-Semps" in another post. ha ha ha

I am getting some better ideas than just a box now. :-)

What the heck is the big black thingamajig?
It looks great and I would love to have it, but somehow I think it will be hard to find. :lol:

Thanks for posting that site. Loved the ideas and the dog.
Someday I would love to have a cool semp. container. Right now just using the clay herb container with only 2 kinds of semps in it.

You have opened my eyes to a whole new world of things to look for at garage sales.

Simply, Semps that are planted in a rock = "Rock-O-Semps"
(Rock of semps)

Same as Semps planted in a box = "Box-O-Semps"
(Box of Semps)

Just a funny way of saying it. :D

Thanks for the answer.
I was always thinking of "What the hell do they mean."

I don´t know if you know the fish boxes made of Styrofoam...

Semperhans! I sure wish there was a button on your site to read it in english! I've been there a couple times to view and was frustrated, as it's looks so interesting, but I can't read it! :( Love your semp homes!
