|I am torn. I would love to do it with tender succulents it would be beautiful with all the color tender succulents, but it is to big to bring in for the winter so I will use it and do a semps Ball.. It is a candle holder so it opens which will make it easy to open and put soil in.|
But I need something to climb. I am going to want it to be a airy climber because I do not want to really cover the design but just for interest. hummmm decisions decisions. But I just wanted to share.

|Interesting garden sculpture, Cinta! |
Was thinking if using succulents, easier to find one trailing down than climbing up? Unless you use non-succlulent climbers which are easier to find?

|What a wonderful project that will be. My mind is not coming up with any thing airy yet, to climb. |
How about these?
Cypress Vine (Ipomoea quamoclit)
Wild Yellow Passion Flower (Passiflora lutea)
Blue Passion Flower (Passiflora caerulea)
Passion Flower (Passiflora 'Incense')
Clematis (Clematis pitcheri)
But a very few of what comes up when you do a database search for vine.

|Thank you guys. I think it was cheap because people do not light candles anymore, Everything is solar lights in the garden these days. Should have seen me trying to get it into my little car. I did not have the jeep because I was not planning to buy any plants. I forgot I have a habit of buying big stuff other than plants. |
I like Nutcrackers and one year I found a huge one for my Christmas yard decor. I had the top down on the convertible and there I was riding around with the top down and a Nutcracker sitting up in the back seat held down with the seat belt . The looks I got was funny,

Oh Cinta, I love the picture that Nutcracker passenger made in my mind/imagination.
