BEFORE...planted in May...
Blooming in June and early July...
AFTER: Deader than a Doornail in late July.
With little time to spare, I decided to "shop the house" and try to see the planter in a new way. Here's what I came up with...
Now driftwood and shells replace the flowers for a quick fix...just in time for guests to arrive.
Sometimes I just need to remind myself to look at things not for what they are but for what they could be. Necessity is truly the mother of invention!
What other ideas might you have come up with?
