I know just about everyone has a favorite plant (or two, or three), but what about a plant pot? Is there one that you favor over the rest? If there's more than one you want to show off, that's okay too. Show picture(s) of your favorite(s)! You can opt to take a picture of just the pot, or display it with a plant (that's up to you!).

I have a few pots that I like a lot, but this would be my favorite. I found it at Dollar General for $3:

That's a great pot, Planto.

This is one of my favorites.

@SongofJoy,
Haha, Thank You!

I like your lady pot there. Definitely unique! Did you supply her earrings, or did she come with them?

I have so many favorite pots. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pots. I think the pot makes the plant. I will go with these because when I saw them I had to have them. It was my first trip to Mexico. I removed under wears from my luggage to make room to bring them home. They are 25 yrs old.

She came with the earrings, Planto. I can't find a photo of my metal rooster planter but I know it's around here somewhere. Glare

I have an old coal scuttle planted with semps that I'm very fond of.

Cinta,
Wow, those are cool! It's a feat to find unique pots or plant "holders," that's for sure.

Song,
That's cool. I'd be inclined to change out her earrings sometimes lol.

The metal rooster sounds cute. My Mom is into farm animals as decorations, sounds like something she'd like.

I like your coral scuttle potter. What Semps are those?

Thank you Planto. Yes when I find a unique pot I buy them. I really think they are the jewels of the plant. A nice pot can make the plant look even prettier.

Thank You! I have a couple more to "show off," but they're in storage at my Mom's (hey, a one bedroom apartment only fits so much stuff! :lol:). I'll have to take some pictures the next time I'm out there.

Never could find the rooster photo. He's outside though. After coffee, it occurred to me to just go out and take another one. Rolling on the floor laughing

Thanks for taking another picture just for me. Smiling I'm sure my Mom would love something like that, but roosters aren't a common animal you find around here for some reason. I would have never thought of using a croc shoe, but it does have enough drainage. That is so cool!

The clog planter is really cute. I could see that as a idea borrow. The kids clogs come in some really pretty colors. I was going to do a land of the lost shoes garden going down into the wooded area of my property. Just never got around to doing it yet.

Thank you for the idea.
