Hi Sunita,
Thanks!(-:

Hi Joy,
I am sorry to hear you have a virus! Terrible time to get one! I know how it goes though)-: I had a week of not feeling good after I got out of school)-: Not sure if was allergy related or what.
Hope you are doing better!

Hi Japanese Redneck,
That little statuary looks pretty real. I have its brother in the same planter. I keep forgetting to take a picture of him.

tina said...

The planters are so cute! I am not sure which one I like the best but the sedum with the shoes looks like big bows on it.

Dee said...

Oh they are just wonderful- I love the shoes especially-very cool! And do share how you did the tipsy pot thing?

Nola @ the Alamo said...

Those shoes are just perfect! I love the look of the "ornament" on each shoe.

Hi Dragonfly lady,
Thank You(-: I hope you had a great Monday!

Hi Meadowview Thymes,
The Sempervivums do great here. I have some that naturalized in the ground and are doing great! We are in zone 9 We do get frost in the winter and have snow on occasion. Its hot here and dry in the summers. They would do fine in a spot where they don't sit in water in the winter.

Hi Julie,
Thanks! It does great all on its own. Its one of those kind of plants you plant and forget about...(-:

Hi Tina,
Thanks. The shoes are planted with Semps and they do look like big bows! I loved how that worked out!

Hi Dee,
Thank You.
The tipsy pots are super easy. All you need is a rebar post. Tractor Supply sells them or any farm supply place maybe even Lowes/Home Depot. Then you just slide the pots one at a time down that bar and fill with soil/plants. When you start sliding them on you will see how it works. You just adjust the pot to sit on the side of the other pot. Thats it!(-:

Hi Nola,
Thanks(-: I did try to do that and it seemed to work on a few of my shoes!!(-:

Jesikarena said...

I LOVE that little deer its so cute! And way to go on the teapot! I would have never thought of that! How did you do put the teapot on top of the tispy pots??? Did you have to put a hole in the teapot??? I absolutely love it!

CiNdEe said...

Hi Jesikarena,
Thanks!
The teapot had a hole it the bottom already so it fit right on top of the rebar post(-:

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Eww, I like your cactus tipsy pots. Your little (none munching) deer looks so cute in the bed.

Kathleen said...

There you go again being incredibly clever. I LOVE the shoes. We could all take lessons in planting from you. They are all great Cindee.
