Just the other day, when scrounging through the GoodWill Outlet, I found this cute (and very solid) wicker basket (or maybe hamper).

Time to line the basket with a common, but handy kitchen trash bag.

Once I filled her up with potting soil, I was ready for plants.

Geraniums, kalanchoe, lamb’s ear and a hen n’ chick succulent…lots of texture and subtle color variations. I can’t wait for them to fill in!

After tucking it in, I layered on some moss….you can vary the look by using lanscape rocks, tumbled glass, or standard mulch…sky is the limit!
