Not too long ago I was given a hand-me-down planter with these little gnomes that hang off the sides. Now I know these guys are pretty cute, but I’m not so much into cutesy garden things. Don’t unfriend me for that!
Okay, they’re actually kind of hard to resist with their mischievous little faces… they spell trouble, right? But, I still wasn’t convinced. I kept trying to decide where to feature this planter with these little guys, and then it all came together for me!
My friend Heather over at Grillfusion blog posted about her new little friend, a white garden gnome! Seeing the gnome in white changed everything! Thanks for showing me the way, Heather!
Here’s a look at what I did.
Poor, unsuspecting little guys! I painted the planter, too.
And then potted it up.
Rosemary & Basil…
And look who popped up!
See what I mean about mischievous? How did he get in there??
And what’s this guy doing hanging around here?
So bad. I knew they were trouble!
I guess my planter of herbs is their new playground!
I’m hoping the herbs will survive in this planter, but if not I’m game to move them and try something else!
How about you? Have you given herbs in a planter a try? And what about garden gnomes? Are they in or out at your home, or have you already unfriended me for that?
Today I’m linking up over at Satori Design to join Shauna and the gang for the outdoor extravaganza party. Why not pop over and check out what everyone else has been up to! And if you’re into potting up herbs, check out Shauna’s tutorial. She’s has a few great tricks to share!
Thanks for stopping by!
