It's Time to Plant your Spring Bulbs in Creative Planters & time to Plant out your Pansies for Winter Color
Find something within your home or at the thrift store that is unique and makes your Spring Bulbs in to a conversation piece
Very pleasing to the eye
They are just so romantic ..don't you think ??
Don't pass by wonderful cups and bowls at the thrift store even if they have crack or chip in them.
They make the best containers to display your Spring Bulbs in, all over the house.
An old basket will also do the job.
How about a large empty can that used to hold beans, soup etc ..and wrap it in burlap or some pretty fabric or just pop it in to a burlap bag like the one above
Now it's time to look inside those kitchen cabinets;
And see what you can find;
An old casserole dish ..
An old colander ..
A lovely sauce/gravy boat ..
A pretty tea pot ..
A pretty coffee pot ..
Even in the garden or refrigerator ..
You might find some large cabbage leaves;
That you can wrap around
An old container, food can etc ..
You will have color all winter long
Why not plant them in colanders as in the photo above
You can always buy them from the thrift store for pennies
Spray them whatever color you like
And either hang them or just group them together
The holes are natural drainage
I love them
To have a spot of colour outside in the bleak mid winter makes the heart warm
Below are some of the containers I used for mine last year
