More GJ Planters ...by the Ponds

jeannespinesMay 13, 2011

The other day I planted this old Copper Kettle & Copper planter ... today I added my brown metal teapot to the vignette...all you totem people gave me the idea of making this "totem-like" w/a big brown insulator I bought at a GS last yr, I think:

Here's a better view of the Teapot totem ...I use teapots to water my plants:

A "short" totem, I know! LOL! And here's another view...the barrel pond is at this corner...where I showed the metal froggies the other day:

At the fish pond I used these planters...the cement square one w/pea gravel finish is quite old...bought it as a 2nd & it stays out all winter...tho I turn it upside down:

At the other end of the fish pond is a cedar wood planter (gift a few yrs ago) & I filled it with Petunia's & an iron frog stepping stone (clearance buy last yr from HLobby)...I love HLobby!)

You can see that same glass totem birdbath I made in May 2009...it has done good! It's so fun to get ideas from this forum!

Another view shows the Red Dogwoods a bit & some of pond bridge. Seeing this pic, I think I need to add another of my cement 'Shrooms! TFLookin' & hoping May brings some more good weather after these upcoming couple days ahead of rain & cold! Jeanne S.

You have the neatest stuff, and the neatest yard, making me wish I was living next door to you to really enjoy it. I love it all, and have for a long time.

hugs, Karen

It's great to see your pretty birdbath again! I inherited a couple of copper pots like yours from my father-in-law. Now I'll have to plant them. One has holes rusted through the bottom so no drainage problems there. Your insulator is really different. I have never seen one like that before. Great ideas and pretty pictures! Keep 'em coming!

It all looks so nice. The mosaic planter, frog stepping stone to go with other froggies, the bird bath near the bridge! Very refreshing! Jan

Thanks, GJers...appreciate your comments.
So enjoyable to be outside (sometimes the 50's lately & sometimes the 80's & 90's...LOL!) Now if I can only catch up w/the weeds everywhere...will take some time since it's a late Spring here in IA.

GJ forum has given me so many fun ideas! So back at ya...keep the ideas & pics coming! Jeanne S.

Great pix, the brown teapot totem-ette is precious and looks great in it's natural surroundings. I've always loved the bird bath also.
