Here is the broken bird bath with lemon thyme in it. You can see my swimming pool herb garden creeping in from the left side. Anything is fair game

Oh I so agree. I once picked up the top HALF of a beautiful (but broken) terracotta pot by the side of the road, buried it in my yard and it now looks like I have a plant in a large pot....

I really like the wagon, must suggest that to my friend who has a broken one.

Those are really great Cindy! Wish my Calibrachoa was half as healthy looking as yours!

Thanks everyone! I'm so glad I did not throw it in the trash.

Love that wagon. I am with Kat, those are healthy, beautiful Calibrachoa. They are supposed to be such easy plants, mine never looked that good. Love the touches of other colors to.

You too Lynn? My Calabrachoa never really amounts to anything. I blame the heat but maybe that's not it!

It could be that I forget to water them enough. I am so used to drought tolerant plants. Sticking tongue out

I've been telling my local nurseries about all the head planter collectors here and they are begining to respond.

And if you prefer to hang your heads on the wall, they have that too.

Does anyone have any ideas for using Thai caladiums in containers? My grand dog ate my camera cable so I can't post any photos until the new one arrives but they are tiny, compared to regular caladiums, and they have bright, waxy looking leaves and now that I have about a dozen coming up I don't know what I want to do with them. I had an idea when I ordered them but that was months ago and my brain has melted. LOL

Any thoughts?

I think Kathy's arrangement is one of my all time favorite combinations. She is on a much deserved vacation. I sure miss her and hope she's having a blast in Mexico.

Where did you order your Thai caladiums from? Drooling Once I saw this photo I fell in love with them. Not sure I can overwinter them here.

Several friends and I ordered them from NeoFarms in Thailand and the bulbs arrived with the appropriate inspections so that part was easy and the price was right if you get a group of friends together to buy. They are shipped with their first leaves and the stress of shipping took it's toll on them so we sort of had to start over growing them and they are just now starting to show their beautiful colors.
Years ago I bought some from Gretchen and Chris at Buried treasures and the bulbs came up for about 3 years. They were in the ground; I think I will keep these in containers.

Thank you, I am in zone is 9a. Here are some of the Thai babies. It is hard to see but the leaves are shiny and waxy. There are about a dozen more still too tiny to photograph. One of my friends just potted all hers in one pot for a mass of color. I may do some of that as we live on a sea island and I am trying to limit the number of my containers due to sometimes having to haul everything inside if a storm approaches. I say that every year and still the number of pots seems to multiply. :-)

Kat's container is gorgeous like all her's are. I may copy her and stick a couple in existing containers but I am not sure on their sun/shade/water needs yet.

I hope you have better luck overwintering caladiums than I did, Susan. But then, the ones I bought didn't do all that well anyway, so maybe that was the problem. Rolling my eyes.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Wow, I just took a closer look at that container of Kathy's that you posted. That is really gorgeous! And are those gerberas in there, too?
