scrap planter appreciation.

i have this random flat plastic pot that I just throw scraps in.. because i am a true plant hoarder & i just can’t throw anything away. all of the stuff you see here was grown from random leaves, twigs, seeds, half dead stuff, etc. i just toss the scraps in and hope for the best. i also toss in pretty rocks and things that I find.

what was once a pretty gross pot of dead looking scraps is now my favorite planter in my collection.

Plant of the Day

Tulip Week - A container display to catch the attention of visitors with Tulipa ‘Suncatcher’ with raspberry-red tipped flowers extending up from a striking yellow base. In the same pot was Tulipa 'Holland Queen’ a yellow Rembrandt tulip with broad red flames and Tulipa 'Ile de France’ a cardinal red tulip with blood red colouring inside.

My little lemon thyme wishing well is looking so gorgeous! It’s got sea glass, glass beads, and the water feature is half a broken ceramic bowl (it’s hard to tell there’s water in it).

I rescued this thyme from walmart a while ago, a sad, yellowing little plant. Just look at it now!
