Back when I visited Cracked Pots at Edgefield I passed on a great rusty metal planter from Indio Metal Arts. Evidently my resolve to "be careful I don't add so much visual clutter you are no longer able to see the plants, for the containers" can be thrown right around the window when that cool container is only $2...
Yes, I purchased the tall rusty tube on the left (above) for just $2, it stands upright no matter what I put in it (and I've tried a few things) thanks to this nifty little base.
I decided for now I'd fill it with the drying Eryngium agavifolium blooms that were flopping all over the place, but I wasn't ready to yet get rid of.
Even brown they're still cool,
Now about that out of control Grevillea juniperina ‘Molonglo’ on the left, time to get out the pruners...
Weather Diary, Sept 4: Hi 84, Low 52/ Precip 0
The stats are in, if you're interested in such things, and June/July/August will go down as the 2nd hottest summer on record here in Portland. The period of May through August '18 is the driest we've ever experienced.
