I found this in the woods behind my house and lugged it out. I think I know what I want to do with it, but...wanted to know what others thought.

It is an old iron "kettle" - I just realized the pics aren't the greatest... [Roll Eyes] [nutz]

i love it. i'd fill it with flowers or hens & chicks or something.... i have one, but it is intact and i don't want to put anything in it...

you could always "dress' it up by like, painting it a bronzr, copper, or even trying to polish it. I would put something that really doesn't spread too much, or you could mix it in a flower bed so you see only the parts that are not broken of the kettle. Or, you can plant something that WILL spread, so it covers most of the kettle, although allowing parts of it to stil lbe seen

My idea would be to set it on it's side. Bad side down. Plant something in it spreading out.
What is that green thing behind the pot in the second pic? Looks like something [Big Grin]

I'd drill some holes in it for drainage and plant a few different succulents in it. The metal will possibly get very hot in the sun and succulents will handle that.

It doesn't matter where you go in life... It's who you have beside you when you get there.

I agree with putting the bad side on the ground. Fill it with dirt so it looks spilled out.. Plant the flowers the entire length of the dirt, and it looks like a dumped out flower pot.
