I would never have thought to use a hard hat as a planter. That is a great upcycling idea!

And I love the combo of plants in there. I have something similar to that green one. It pops up in one of my beds. I never planted it! I take it out and it reappears. It could be invasive if I didn't stay on top of if. But it would be perfect for a container like this. Thank you for the idea.

Thank you Jennifer. I started out with some leftover album sedum, all green. Then someone on here suggested different colored ones. So there they are. Linear, Tricolor, Voodoo plus the album. Thank You! Group hug

Linda this is a very lovely photo of different sedum growing in the same fun container. Such a wonderful way to showcase how these little plants can play off each other in color and form. Great planting.

Thank you Lynn. Looking at how pretty and dark Salsa Verde is the other day. I think it needs brightening up maybe Limelight.
