Old picnic basket has it's uses.

Found this old picnic basket in the shed and placed upside down pots in the bottom then filled it with plants.

thanks TBear. This sits under the car port on the table between the benches. It's somewhere to sit if it's too hot on the patio, but that's not very often is it at the moment.

Got caught in 2 huge downpours on Saturday going for the paper. Soaked. We really needed the rain as all 3 butts nearly empty. Lovely pot arrangement Lindak.

Black clouds were about but not much rain here at all Dorjac. We've had some rain at night but sometimes seem to be on the edge of it all. I watered the garden yesterday and fed all the plants. Glad you like this little arrangement, It brightens a blank space.
