Up until now our very useful water butt on the corner of the house, in the front garden, in full view of the neighbours, has been beautifully disguised by a ceanothus which we have trained round it. Unfortunately it died this Winter. As a short-term measure I'd like to put some sort of shallow container on top with trailing plants. It is a South-facing, exposed area and any ideas would be much appreciated.

I have nasturtiums trailing over my water butt and last year I had sweet peas. Didn't conceal it, but were very pretty. Because it was underneath the guttering I had to water the pot quite regularly as the rain didn't reach it.
