Maybe you can get some inspiration from this link:
Put pumpkins and gourds in for fall.
What about a little themed Zen garden. With the pebbles and sand and mini Buddha ornaments.
Hi Shirley. I'm Cindy. Your question reminds me of my sister who lives in Southern Illinois. She does not have a green thumb. At all. She put artificial flowers and greenery in her pots on her front porch and on both sides of her driveway. She got it all at her Dollar Store. I can tell you that it really does look nice.
Thanks I use $ store flowers. I live where there are hard winds so looking for something too outlast the wind
You could fill it with pumpkins in the Fall.
Thanks I was looking for something for all summer
thanks for your idea
