I was marveling at how well the arch frames this container and then I saw the piggie bird bath!!! Squeal with delight!!!

It is amazing how an old pot can look so elegant with just the right planting and placement.

Great job!

That piggie seems to end up in every photo taken in that spot. Piggy piggie! I do have a fondness for them.

The copper arch was from a trellis my husband made that the wind helped destroy so I put the top to use at the potting bench. Once the 9'9" trellis displayed a Jackmanii clematis but you can see how the wind tore off the top.
