My Son's Hanging Planter

click on pictures to really see those little succulents growing!

My son, who works for the tree company, Coastal Tree Experts --(you can see my charcoal drawing of him here), made this great hanging planter. He cut a V into a log, closed the ends somehow---looks like a cross section was nailed onto one end, the other might have a chunk of wood as a filler? Hung it up with heavy duty fishing line, and planted some little succulents! I love this--I'm anxious to see how it looks when those succulents root and grow!

Combine the chairs and the planter!----(in a way, of course, that you don't sit on the plants)

I love it!

But how do you keep the inside of the planter from rotting?


Susan Beauchemin said...

Hi Dean, you don't! You could plant the whole log into the ground, when it looks ready to fall apart--let it rot, let it rot, let it rot!!

martha miller (it's all art, isn't it?) said...
