After yesterdays question about statues i was thinking about some of the things ive seen here used as plant holders such as a bath outside one farm house front window,
But the one the sticks out "and its still there today is a toilet, full of flowers and sitting under the post box at the end of this little cottages path, its even got a loo roll holder fixed to the fence,
On the little old wooden gate is a picture of a cat with the beware of "loulou" she'll lick you to death.
Can anyone beat that for a statement?
What are you going to buy, the statue or the lions?
I'm not too hot on imaginative plant holders......I have reclaimed old chimney pots, washing machine drums (that I've made into "stone" containers) and reclaimed old kitchen sinks, again turned into stone troughs.
However, old wheelbarrows, watering cans, shoes, etc are often used to present some impressive annual displays.
Hubby's old leaky wellies grew two lovely carrots
