We bought this urn new many years ago,but whatever we planted into it
never grew. I think it must have been something in the cement it is made of.
It has sat in a corner of the garden for ages unused.
Then the other day I thought of turning into a bird bath,or little water feature
Sooooo I decided to mosaic it
When I checked out the cost of cement,grout and mosaic tiles I nearly fainted
Then I found a huge bag of glass flat pebbles for $17
I thought maybe they would look ok
I forgot to take a picture before but remembered half way through
You can see how bad the pot is,I had previously painted it
Getting there, It is quite therapeutic,sitting in the shade of the garden
gradually seeing it take shape.
Finished, I can't find where,but I think it has a small leak:(
I really can't see how it can,there is so much cement and grout on it.
A little look at the garden to warm my Northern hemisphere friends
The veggie patch is doing well this year
My organic cucumbers would definitely be rejected by Coles
as they aren't perfectly straight :)
Green beans gone mad
The front garden
We have 3 older roses out here which do quite well
2 yrs ago we added 2 more in between,but they have never grown much,
so we moved them to pots in the back garden and they have just shot up,
I think they got a little hot out front and not so much water,and yet the older ones
See you at the linky parties
Links on my side bar
I hope you are having a great week
