I picked up this great pot at Lowes the other day. It was $30 which I thought was a pretty good price, not a great deal but a good enough price. It is a big pot 91/2 inches deep and 20 inches wide. It is glazed with no drain holes and a fluted edge. My first idea was to use it as some kind of water feature and I may do that. Then I thought what a great size and shape for a cactus/succulent garden but the glazing and lack of drainage made me rethink that idea not to mention the dirt would cover up the beautiful glazing. I keep thinking maybe a catch basin for a water feature so that the color glazing inside the bowl will be seen even a small water plant will cover up the pretty inside.
Ric really liked it and has the idea of putting a drain hole in the bottom and turning it into a bathroom sink. I may let him try that but the idea of a small water feature is rolling around in my head. It's not like I need another small water feature. Is there such a thing as too many water features.

Nice find Holly, I like the idea of a small water feature too Thumbs up
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

That is a beautiful pot Holly. Thumbs up

My deck is just full of pots right now. I haven't even thought about what to put in them.. Well, I will do herbs and annuals of course. I haven't brought any of my pots that I grow veggies in here yet.

I think it might be a bit late to put Pansies in some. What do you think?

I still haven't figured out what I will do with that. I would like to make it a spill over bowl with a something pouring in to it and a catch basin under it. I will keep my eyes open for the right thing. I just put together a really nice pansy pot for my Mom. I used a Strawberry Pot and filled the holes with Pansies.

That sounds nice. Big Grin If I go out tomorrow, I may pick some up. I'd have to go over to the other house and get some soil though. Grumbling

I'm passing on the pansies this year Stormy, If I don't get some in by now I don't bother. I got rid of a lot of pots this year, so many were cracked last year and I just turned them around or put them in the back. They are all just kind of sitting there now, waiting patiently Whistling I did get a few petunias today and some trailing snapdragons for a basket I'm going to do by my back door. Even if we get a light frost they will be up so should do OK. I can't wait to get started Big Grin

Heck, I could dig a bunch of pansies up over at the house. I've got tons growing there. Duh, I don't know why I don't think of these things. Blinking

Great idea! I put in pansies in the fall and always go with the fall colors, now orange and dark burgundy don't look real spring like, I will have to remember to do some yellow and a few lighter colors for next year.

The nursery I was at today had some of those new fangled black pansies, and a few of the other dark colored crazy ones...not sure if I like them Confused Glad I didn't start them from seeds.

I don't like those real dark maroon almost black ones. But I do love the orange ones, especially mixed with the cornflower blue ones.

A lot of mine are ceramic and I put plastic pots inside of them. I haven't brought any of the plastic pots here yet. Has anyone started their Caladiums indoors yet?

I stared mine a few weeks ago, just starting to see a few shoots. I missed Caladiums for Less sale this year so just picked up a bag at HD, seems like it will be a nice mix.

Stormy I have quite a few extra Caladiums coming. They would be a mixed lot from Bill so I wouldn't be able to tell you which varieties they are. I was planing on bringing some of them to the swaps. But I can mail some to you if you aren't going to make the swaps or if you want them before that.
Ronnie where do you store those pots in the winter? Do you just let them sit out or pack them away and drag them all back outside?

Holly I used to drag them all to the garage got tired of doing that when seems every year I added more. Now I just leave them out. That's why a lot of them cracked but that was after a good few years, Had my money's worth with them. Some are cold hardy should I say...a lot are from flea markets so they didn't cost much. I do drag quite a few into the basement with some plants I over winter, they may come out over the weekend.

I drag all of the ceramic ones in. It is a big chore in & out. Even bigger this year. None of them broke in the pickup on the ride over. I'm amazed. Blinking

Still have to move all of the plastics and my tomato pots. Blinking
