Spring Planter

I created this spring-look planter for my mom's eighty-second birthday. She loves gardening but is limited as to what she can do, these days. Age and back injuries have taken their toll. So I try to gift her with items of a garden nature because she loves them so much.

BAHAhahaah!  Yes, most probably, John...btw, have you noticed there hasn't been many new people with comments on your planter lately?  I think we've run 'em all off with our silliness!

Ahhh well.  I always look forward to a good laugh; there's too many mean people out there.....

Ha!  Bonnie, you crack me up!  "Purple poo" to make the dirt like new!

I had no idea that ajuga was used in this manner!  Gotta love all the new things we learn here on GS!
