I bought this old tea kettle and a similar one several years ago at an estate sale for a couple of dollars. I knew what I use them for when I saw them ...plant flowers in them! I fill each one every year with impatiens. Impatiens grow great in our back yard with all the shade.
I placed the tea kettle on the deck as you come onto the screen porch. The fern remained green all winter I suppose from the mild temps. And of course more impatiens in another planter. I like to group my flower pots together.
My screen porch is going to become a sunroom as soon as my husband is able to tackle the chore ... hopefully soon!
We are getting much needed rain today and the impatiens are loving it!
Thanks for visting!
