We chose to plant some really cool cacti in this cool planter (gloves were 100% necessary).  But, this kind of planter would be great for herbs and flowers as well. We have this planter along side out garage, but with the big industrial castors I added, it can easily be moved around the yard.

I also played around adding a little pattern to the sides of the planter with some simple vinyl half circles in white and gold. I like the option of being about to remove the pattern if I wanted a cleaner, simpler, all-black look later.

The warmer weather is definitely welcome here. We are enjoying living more and more of our days outside. This is our first Spring in this house, so it’s been fun to plant new plants and plan out the outdoor space a little as well. Here’s hoping Spring is headed your way as well.
