I do notice that there are not many "bright" bottles in this wall, either. I find that local bars and restaurants will save them when asked, as long as they are picked-up each week.

Also try wine bars - look online how to color bottles DIY (modgepodge + ) if I find one I will post it

une idée de tableau végétal, vraiment simple à mettre en place et très facile d'entretien. Ce cadre végétal à poser (son poids est trop important pour pouvoir l'accrocher) fleurira par touches de couleurs suivant les saisons.

Régalez-vous à le confectionner...

Construct allium inspired garden stakes

Construct allium inspired garden stakes | gardening | Scoop.it

The showy flowers of allium bloom in early summer and carry a sweet, pungent scent.  If you garden outside of USDA Zones 4-7, or in a state that prohibits the growth of allium, you can obtain the illusion of the plant by creating spheres carrying their form.

Il vous reste des dalles utilisées pour votre terrasse????.... voici une idée originale et pour le coups, assortie à votre extérieur... 

 

Avec du ni clou ni vis, votre jardinière prendra forma en un rien de temps.

 

Prévoyez quand même un plastique à l'intérieur afin que si de la terre devait s'échapper, qu'elle ne vous salisse pas votre belle terrasse....

These natural and durable building materials provide a very cool contrast to elegant succulent plants. Used bricks work even better because they have a bit of personality and history behind them, and they are inexpensive (if they are used, they are probably thrown away, so they are free)!  The tricky part is to drill the holes, it not very difficult but you’ll have to be very patient, because any shock could shatter the brick.
