When we landscaped our front yard some 10 years ago,
we planted a blue cypress tree that did not fair well over the winter months.
So much snow falling off the roof damaged it beyond repair,
so we had to remove it.
The spot where said tree was located has remained vacant for quite a few years.
I don't know why, but we never replanted anything there.
Every summer, I would add a large pot of flowers, but nothing ever really
showed up well in that spot for some reason.
So, I did what every other self-respecting Pinteresting blogger does...I found
something I liked and wanted to copy.
Oh I can hear the remarks from my husband still ringing in my ears....
"There is no way this is going to work."
"It'll never hold up without falling down."
"How are they going to stay like that with nothing holding them in place?"
Blah, blah, blah!
I love that man, but sometimes he can be a kill joy!
He did help me with the project though.
Or maybe I should be truthful and say, he did all the work and I just
supervised him. Now I'm not sure if his help was genuine or he was
just waiting to say, "I told you so."
So far so good.
Just the thing to fill that empty spot!
My husband was surprised it actually worked and what's
even better is that he really likes it.
I had to laugh when he & I were out in public last week
and an old friend of ours remarked how much he loved our crooked pots.
Ha! I promptly thanked him for saying
just the right thing in front of just the right person!
Don't you love it when that happens?
