Howdy, All....

I got tired of tripping over a cheap guitar that was laying around the shoffice so decided to turn it into something of value.

I guess this is "garden art". Or maybe it is "container gardening".

Regardless, here is a bit of music. A Guitar Art Container with several types of coleus and, center stage, is a Caladium humboldtii I moved from a log planter; it just seemed to want to be in this "container" instead of the log planter it was originally planted in.

Thanks, folks...

Vic, the Caladium was originally planted in a log, one I kept throwing aside for two years (or 3?) instead of burning it in the wood stove, knowing full well one day I'd plant something in its hollows:

Thanks, ya'll.

I'm just glad I didn't have a spare piccolo laying around; what a chore that would've been to plant in! Sticking tongue out
