Made 5 of these for my sister this year, for Mothers day. They were smaller than yours I think. It was pretty tough to keep them watered for her. Yours are just lovely.

RJ, I would really love a pic of the planting ball.
Janet your planters, your beds and wall, what a wonderful oasis you have created. I would love to have a morning cup of Joe there, I would have to try not to giggle when dh hits his head again. Every things looks just perfect for you.
