not much of a gardener......

I'm not much of a gardener, but I think I pulled this project off pretty well :)
The terra cotta pots and teapot are new, the strawberry planter I've had for about 16 years (it has hens & chicks in some holes, and moss in others)  My husband hates the moss and spots on the planter, I love the old weathered look :)
I drove a metal garden rod into the strawberry planter, then added the terra cotta pots one by one tipping them one direction, then the other, filling them with soil/plants as I went.  When I got to the teapot, I cut the garden rod so it wouldn't show out of the top of it :)  I think it turned out pretty well!  All the plants are trailing plants, so it should look really cool once they really start growing! :)
