My pots at the front steps were in a desperate state.
You know when planters and pots get at that in-between stage: end of one season and you haven’t bother to plant for the following season.
Well, that’s what my planters looked like.
It was my day off and I didn’t feel like much like driving into town to buy some new plants and I’m still recouping from spending more money on my son’s birthday present than I wanted to (Playstation 3 Move).
So what to do on a zero budget?
Walk around the yard and cut some
weeds wildflowers, trimmings, and branches. The purple perennials are still holding on but the rest of the plants are gone now.
I started by cutting some willow branches for height and added other trimmings and wildflowers in the front to fill.
A cute little faux pumpkin that I carved hangs from a Sheppard's hook. The hook was left over from a landscape lighting that came with both a hook and a stem. It’s like getting a free gift!
