Every Thursday, we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm.
Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!
As we start to clean off the porch, we begin to turn to thinking of ways to have greenery and things growing. Sure we could used clay pots (which we have a lot of) but we always feel like it should be something different. And when I saw this idea at HOUZZ.com, we loved it. It's a shop (somewhere) that the owners change out the plantings seasonally. We love the use of galvanized tubs as they see much more "farm-y" (yeah, I just made that word up, ha!).
Looks like the owner of these put some wooden feet on the bottom. Seems pretty easy to do. And leaving them 'natural', i.e. no painting, they would work great and look good.
We like the idea of seasonally changing plants too. I can find these tubs all over the place here in town (several farm supply and garden / feed stores have them) so once the porch is cleaned off, this would be easy to implement.
Now we just have to get on that...hmm, maybe in a few more weekends.
