I think you know that I love to plant flowers in junk!
I bring my houseplants outside during the summer. This peace lily is in a terra cotta pot and is positioned among my vintage garden hand tools in a wooden raisin crate.
I have had this stepladder in my front border for many years. I always anchor the terra cotta pots on the ladder rungs with large spikes in the pot holes.
Pots on spikes on rungs here too.
Again on this old tree house ladder, I positioned terra cotta pots with the holes on a large nail or spike.
And right side up with hen and chicks and impatiens. (Like this)
One year I planted terra cotta pots with red geraniums to match this sign, (here in early spring).
I have used terra cotta pots with rustic frames. Again, I have used a nail in the frame to anchor the terra cotta pot with succulents.
And then there are the terra cotta pots from my sister in law's gardens! Fun with gnomes and a miniature wagon.
AND, fun with hen and chicks in terra cotta pots and horse shoes on chicken wire in a frame!!!!!!!
I love terra cotta.
I love terra cotta so much that I painted my 3rd house paint color in terra cotta! My accent color is terra cotta!
The house steel siding is wedgewood blue, (from 1988), the window and soffit trim is white, and the house shutters, doors and garage doors are terra cotta.
