But the cool thing I wanted you to see is this planter...

 Guess what!...
It's not really a planter but the base to a broken bird bath!

We all have them, the top breaks and what do you 
do with the bottom? 

Flip it over into a hole in the dirt, fill the base with dirt, and instant planter! Re-cycling at its best!

  1. Smart thinking Susan! What a well thought out garden. It is going to be beautiful! We tend to garden in the perimeter of our small yard only. I love meandering paths in a garden. Yours is going to be fun.

  2. I love being able to recycle and that is such a great idea! I found your blog from Catch A Glimpse Thursday and am so glad I did :).
