|I am so excited, my herbs are starting to poke through the soil!|
The buckets separate in two pieces, one is a bucket and the other is a bucket with holes around the bottom a few inches up and a top with holes. I took the first bucket and planted lavender. The part with holes I used to plant mint, mint will overtake a garden and is best planted in containers. These are a part of my herb garden that I created out of leftover bricks.
The second bucket has the most adorable fish on it. I have it sitting on my baker's rack, I haven't decided whether or not I am going to add a plant or just use it on the rack for storage. The part with holes had a styrofoam ring on the inside, I tore out this part. Then I added a couple of inches of pebbles and a citronella candle, placing it on the top shelf on the baker's rack. At night it becomes the perfect lantern, adding a nice glow to that area.
|The secret is out, the minnow bucket becomes a lantern!|
Do you have any unusual items in your garden? Next time you see a cute container, try to figure out a unique way to incorporate it in your decor. Just be careful when "borrowing" from your hubby!
