Grand stand

Last weekend, we headed on down the road to see Dave’s Mom and Grandma. Dave’s Mom’s been trying to clean out some of their clutter. She knows I love my gardens, so she asked if I wanted a few terra cotta pots she had hanging about.

They are big, and those babies don’t come cheap, so I said sure! I won’t worry about filling them until next year, but it’s going to be fun deciding what to put in them!

When we got there, the pots were sitting on top of an old wooden plant stand. Someone was throwing it out, and she couldn’t stand to see it go in the garbage, though she didn’t have an immediate use for it.

But I did! So you can bet your bottom dollar it got packed into Dory along with the pots! (I miss my sporty Stella, but I do love Dory for her cargo space!!!!)

As soon as we got home, I rearranged the back patio.

These are all my house plants that spend the summer outdoors. It will be another couple weeks or so before I bring them  in for the winter.  When that happens, I think the wooden stand will get a fresh paint job. I just love giving new life to old things!

    Those terra cotta pots will be so wonderful when you start planning your gardens in 2020. So many possibilities and that plant stand is great. Your house plants are beautiful and you have so many!

    What a fantastic find! It looks wonderful there on your porch. I can’t wait to see what goes into all of those new pots in your next gardening season (and am so grateful I can live vicariously through your gardening 🙂 ).
