Wall planters with bedding begonias.

Wall planters with bedding begonias.

We have one of the planters on each brick pillar, either side of the front door. This was another little restoration project. These two planters were in many pieces having been left outside for many winters. I managed to put the jigsaws back together and painted them with a terracotta masonry paint/PVA mixture. The begonias are actually last years, overwintered under the patio table. I intend to bring them indoors each winter from now on!

Thanks Carole. Much more satisfying than just chucking them out and buying new. Means I can buy more beer with the money I've saved .... lol.
