Boots of Flowers

Leigh, From Tales from Bloggeritaville, took her niece's old rain boots and planted petunias in them....I thought this was so clever that when I saw these children's boots at a garage sale for $.50, I had to buy them and copy her idea:
As you all know, I do not have a green thumb and I do not enjoy gardening, but I am trying to create a rock garden in the back of my yard to take away from the ugly drainage area. I don't tend to this area very often because my husband saw a HUGE snake there the other day...he described it as being "huge and very long" and I asked him if he was sure it was not a dinosaur!

But either way, the boots are fun to look at rather than the rocks...thanks Leigh for the great idea!

  1. I love this idea Patti. Thanks for sharing it. My sisterinlaw has taken cowboy boots and put Sunflowers in them for decor before and it is a real cute idea for cowboy or rustic theme too. Love the boots! Be blessed. Cindy

  2. Somehow I missed the boot flower garden on Leigh's blog, but that is super cute! I especially love them sitting on top of the rock.

  4. Those are very cute! You know I'm going to be looking for rain boots at a garage sale now...and for some reason I can't get the song "These boots are made for Walking" out of my head...and I have you to thank :-)

  7. Hi Patti,
    Great idea for using some of the rulers for a table top. Gives me a good excuse to go find an old table now too.
    I'll keep you posted!

    Maybe the snake hates boots?
