am i the only one who thinks its okay to plant fake flowers????????
1. they don't die
2. they don't need water, therefore cant die
3. when you're over them, you yank them out and stick a new kind in. POOF! pretty flowers!
my sweet mother, and sweet mother-in-law both disagreed with me on this subject and gave me the vote of confidence that "i can do this whole gardening thing" -- they both have beautiful flowers, and even know all the names!!!
my solution: make it cute!
i saw these cute flower pots in front of a really chic boutique in Ruidoso, NM-- and i thought "i can do that, planting flowers is way more fun in a cute pot, right?" so.... here is my attempt at re-creating the cute flower pots:
step 1: spray paint terra cotta flower pots white
(note: this took 2 cans of spray paint, lots of coats)
step 2: paint rim of pot black (acrylic paint)
and tape off stripe lines with painters tape,
remove tape quickly after painting
-black paint will take at least 2 coats-
step 3: re-touch lines and decide this is harder than it looks
apparently, i need more practice.
attempt #1 = mediocre, improvement needed
i give myself a C-
not a complete failure, but not porch worthy yet.
pictures of attempt #2 coming soon!
