Wednesday Vignette, hiding the plastic

We're skipping back to my parents place for this Wednesday's Vignette. As I was grabbing my plants (of course I bought plants while visiting!), to pack-up the car, I spotted a grapevine wreath tucked in a pot of Zantedeschia aethiopica...

It looked purposely placed there, so I asked mom about it.

Turns out she placed the wreath to disguise the white plastic pot the Zantedeschia is growing in (much lighter for carrying into the basement each autumn, she over winters it there, since it's not hardy in Spokane). Mom has nasty allergies so didn't want to use decorative moss to hide the pot. Pretty clever!

  1. That is brilliant! I've been using moss, but it's messy and doesn't look as attractive as I thought it would. I'll have to see what I can find at the craft store.

  2. That is a fantastic idea. I've been planting trailing sedums to hide my plastic pots. I'll have to remember this idea. Thanks for sharing. No wonder you're so smart.

  5. I used to use all my beach stones but they added weight and I had to clean and store them at the end of the season. Now I use pine cones since they are everywhere around me. Your mom's solution suggests that the creative gardening gene runs in your family. If I remember correctly your brother has a pretty nice garden as well.

    1. Beach stones would be so pretty, but heavy. And yes, I just got to visit my brothers garden, it’s magical!
