The container is an old hog trough we took the top off.

the greenhouse was a little more than we needed so we
only use the front half for seedlings and DH designed
himself a cactus garden and a tropical section,we`re hoping to add a small pond in the back corner.

The little yellow chairs are from Wally-World we painted

The hog trough was to be part of the Farm Flower section
sunflowers,corn, peppers, wild flowers,but the Coleus
took over so now I have the Coleus Farm,

That is going to be beautiful. Great re-cycleing. I had guessed Nail bin from a hardware store, but suspect the hardware store adapted the hog feeder to it's use. Did you get in on the Messenger/ Mighty Plant Co-op? If so, give em a good misting.

Oh, my!! I think I'm going to have to copy some of your ideas, if you don't mind!! Both are just too adorable! I love rustic farm looking things! I can't wait to seem them kick into gear either.

I have the same butterfly chair from Wal-Mart, but only one. I never thought of painting it. Sheesh, how smart and easy. A can of spray paint is only $1 at the $ store...and I know I have some in the basement. I think maybe burgandy for mine. Right now it's icky rusty white. Hmm, I wonder what else I could paint while I'm at it??? LOL!

I'm new to Coleus and started mine from seed, and didn't bargain on every seed germinating. I've been wondering what I'd do w/ all of them, but I LOVE the multi-compartment planter. I'm going to have to rig something up like that, even if it's just glad-ware wired together, then planting something under the Coleus to hang down and cover it. Now, where do I want to put it?

If I really do get to do this I'll try to post pics so you can see my version. I hope you don't mind me copying you, what is that they say? "Imitation is the best form of flattery?" Well, at least I don't live next door!

Wow Pheadra, that is so pretty and your collection really growing. I love the old rustic tools too. I hope you can drive down to Molly's Swap on June 17th. I will be bringing antique garden tools as door prizes.

Everything is looking so great! Can't wait to see more pics when it's so filled out that you can hardly even see the planters...although the planters are what makes it so neat!

Wish I could drive on down to Molly's too for a shot at one of those door prizes!

Georgia,

The caladiums in your photo with the butterfly 'chairs' are they dwarf? The left one looks like humboldii. I am a collector of unusual caladiums.

This is a phot of humboldii with amaryllis

Ha Pheadra! All you have is a parade! I'm not sure anyone can beat a hog's eating quarters!
