Natural Garden “Sculpture” May 21, 2013

Months ago, dear friend, Cleo, brought me several of these seed buckets, from a piece of farm equipment. They’ve been sitting idle for a while now.

Empty, they aren’t very interesting. But once you fill them with greenery, all of that changes! I chose succulents for my first experiment.

Once in the shop this morning, I was trying to figure out how to display the “bucket”. Thankfully, the bucket has holes on the back, that are very helpful to use for hanging. I spied my little milk painted ladder, and thought it would be a perfect place to display my new work of art!

I think that it would be really sweet on a patio, or balcony.

Are you a fan of succulents, like me?

      Oooh! Wouldn’t that be great?! The perfect combo! I would imagine you have to grow yours inside, with the extreme weather conditions you have.

    Yes, yes and yes. I love them. I had succulents (hens and chicks) before succulents was popular. LOL I remember my mama had hens and chicks planted everywhere when I was a little girl. But my favorite memory of them is when she planted some in my daddy’s old farm work boots. My daddy thought she as crazy. I loved it. I have it in my own garden now. 🙂 Thanks for sharing. xxoo
