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!

"Elizabeth, I use chicken manure "tea" to keep it so green and the bugs don't like it either. About every 3 weeks seems to be enough."

"It is good to find out a plants real name, so many have the same common names. The common names change depending on what country you live in too. So when you like something that has been posted, its still hard to find."
