Tell us what your containers are like.
Do you grow tropicals? What type of house plants do you tend to? Keep us informed here :biggrin:

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...

Impatiens always look pretty in any container

Here is an old horse feeder hanging on my fence. Sedum does real well for me in it.

I put together an old strawberry jar for my parents house. Doesn't look like much yet. Dark leaf dwarf Begonias, Impatiens, Lobelia, Dragon Wing Begonias.

Come on Sally I know you aren't afraid to paw through someones trash. Hilarious! Hilarious!
Just got a full sized stand up oval mirror in an oak stand. Not a real good one but pretty nice. Now all I have to do is find someone that wants it. Hilarious!

Thanks guys!
I love the watering cans for plants I have a couple of them. I'm always on the lookout for them at the flea markets.

Do you have to keep the metal watering can planters in the shade though?

I grew OSP in mine for a few years before I started using it in my box pond. I put a plastic container in it and just grew the OSP in water. Here is an old pic of it. Thumb of 2011-05-24/HollyAnnS/372c48

Ronnie, what is the sedum in the back of your horse feeder? I have it too and can't find the stupid tag. It's a fave.

Somebody posted this over in Mamajack's forum. Makes a pretty neat display, especially for a small space.

Sheryl the tag says Stonecrop "Sedum cauticola Lidakense"

I saw that pallet container thing in a magazine, so neat, wish I would have saved a few from the pizza shop, I think they would look good painted.
