Wicker Plant Stand






Isn't it charming?
I got it at the auction Thursday!
It even has a metal liner for the plants.
And would you believe $20?
Perfect!

    1. I may have to bring it inside during the winter and enjoy it year round that way!

    2. But that's even better.

      Any ideas what you would like to have growing inside? If I had the window area in my kitchen, I'd fancy a little herb pot collection.

    3. Herbs would be great...love that idea! It wouldn't work in my kitchen, though. Hmmm...I might have to have herbs in the living room. haha.

    4. I tell you, if I had the light, I'd put herbs anywhere in our house. My friend has one of those kitchen windows that bubbles out. Made for herbs. Very nice for cooking. Someday, I'd love one of those.

    1. Hey! It's you! What a nice surprise. :) I love wicker, too. I've tried bidding on a few plant stands like this at previous auctions and they go so high! So this was a real treat. And did you see Slate? He liked it, too!

    1. He follows me around like a dog! So cute. He helped me work outside all day, in between his naps, of course.

      Delete
    2. Dinky follows me around too, but she is just hoping I will drop something edible and I thought it was because she loves me.

  8. I love this! (I'm an old sentimental at heart, you know.) So plant stands with beautiful flowers sitting on the porch just paints a perfect picture for me.

    1. Me, too! Kind of along the same lines as hanging ferns on a porch, screen doors and porch swings. :)

  9. Nice indeed at your feed
    And handy for those in need
    Gives the flowers some sun
    And the cats some shade after they run

    1. Aren't they? I'm pretty excited about it. Maybe some houseplants in the winter, inside, too. That would be fun..as long as Nugget doesn't want to nibble on the legs. ha.

    1. Thanks, Ed :) How nice of you to break away from hosting your dance!
      How did you ever get away unnoticed? lol....The ladies will be calling after you!
      I imagine you'll need to elevate your feet and put bags of frozen blueberries on them later.
      haha.

      Delete
    2. Feels like I dropped a blue 5 pound weight on them - but I have to endure because I have to have return for the last dance to a lady full of mystique and intrigue! haha! A lot of my guests are stranded mid way in cyberspace - oerhaps Keith can help me get them back. haha

    3. Well, if your toe nails are pretty, it will help detract from any bruising. lol...
      I think Keith has turned in for the night. He's too young to be up so late!

      Delete
    4. Promises! Promises! . . . not sure my toe nails are my best feature. So no flip flops for me!
      I think Keith has retired to the land of nod - I wonder whar happened to allow him to comment. I am turning in now because the dance will go on for a few more days. Good night! :)

    5. Well I dreamed I was turned into a toad! lol

    6. Seriously? That doesn't sound like a sweet dream to me!

    7. Well I went back to sleep again and turned back into a Charming Prince!

  16. Love wicker - and particularly white wicker. I would have snapped this up too! The pale pink geraniums are the perfect touch... and Slate too, of course. I can't get over that clematis. It is glorious. So full and such a beautiful, beautiful colour.

    1. I need to show an updated photo so miss clematis...seems she got better with age! Ha.

  17. Slate seems to know he's very photogenic and doesn't miss a chance to be part of the scene. I love his eyes in this shot. They look impish and like he's up for some fun/action. Lynne in NC

  18. Betsy, your yard is beautiful! I love seeing your flowers. This year is going to be lean in terms of flowers in the Johnsons yard as I recover from Lyme's disease...our clematis is finally leafing out...what a difference the zones make in the spring!

    1. Well, you certainly have a good excuse to be lean. Lean means less work, too! haha. I hope my clematis is giving you hope. ha.
