A pot is for plants

A big blue-ridge-mountains pot for the succulents next to my spirit house. I just thinned out the kalanchoe and the aloe.

One of the little off round planters with new basil transplanted. The plate is a seconds.


A new kind of geranium, with such pretty leaves, in another altered slab pot, with another seconds plate beneath it.

My gangly wintered-over geranium transplanted into a matte bronze green altered slab pot.


The wishing well has a baby basil...it may not have enough dirt, and it wasn't designed to hold a plant (so it may not stay there.)  Perhaps a succulent would do better.


A promising petunia in my friend Blair's pot.  Stand is a way I decided to have more height with plants.

The view out my door from the kitchen. My ever-lovin' gardenia which just keeps on surviving. (a plastic planter so I can carry it inside for the winter)

My little front porch welcomes any visitors.

  1. The basil in the wishing well is a great idea! You should make some deep enough for plants.

    1. Hi Linda, I think most round pots have one hole, but the big square one has 4. I usually place a shard over them.
