Yes I am a pot head. If I see a head pot I will buy it even if it is ugly. Rolling on the floor laughing

This has coleus, Caladium, and New-G Impatient It does not seem to be growing very fast maybe because of our horrible hot summer.

Lynn, I found that head at CVS drug store, I think it is a chain. Do you have one in your area? They had pots 50% off in April.

If you want I will look for one for you, It is terra cotta so you cannot leave it out in the winter at least not in my weather.

I know it is hard dragging in all my pots. I lost one of my favorite because I always used it as part of my black and white theme. I have not been able to find another interesting white pot to replace

You do not want to ask that question. Rolling on the floor laughing

I have to have plants
one upper concrete patio that is 60' x 180'
one 20 30 side concrete patio
two gazebo that have to be planted

I do not want to sit on the patios or in the gazebos without seeing plants. So I need the pots. I think the pots make a plant so they have to be different looking pots. I like them to be conversation pieces. Some are butt ugly but they are still a conversation. Rolling on the floor laughing

Cinta I have a head planter obsession/addiction. Thanks for sharing yours. If you find anymore good head pots this year please share. I am always on the hunt for new garden head planters.

Thanks Lynn. They're about life size and made of Qwikwall. I think I got the mold from Hobby Lobby. The mold is actually flat - just the face. I embedded a flower pot in the back of them to plant in and just glued beads on the front.
