I am going to have to wait at least another 3 weeks until my new patio is in place. I am running out of places to stash stuff until I can get stuff put back in place on the patio. But I will make the trip .. with a cart and try to see things the eyes of Lynn, Greg and the rest of you creative types at ATP. To me a broken pot is a broken pot not a possible planter Rolling on the floor laughing

I just came across this thread and even though I don't do much with succulents, I LOVE that birdcage planter!
And speaking of thinking outside the box, I remember there was a conversation, I think it was on Cubits, about using handbags for hanging planters. And another discussion about cutting the legs off old jeans, sewing up the leg holes and using that for a planter. Be cool to use suspenders to hang something like that. Hilarious! Of couse, that wouldn't last too long, but it would be fun!

All done, Thanks for asking. Not exactly as I would have liked but sooooo much better than old cracked and broken cement.

WOW Marilyn, that is beautiful. I love it. I love the way they made the breaks. It is a wide piece of concrete. They did good work. Thank you for showing me.

Oh, that is nice! I can't imagine what you'd have done to make it better. I like the way the bottom step wraps around the two upper steps. Neat look! Thumbs up

Thanks @gg5 , nice to see you back and see you have been busy catching up on all the treads.
Think you might find some fun new apps to play with now that you are back.
