Description

Okay I know this site is about fabric and floss but I wanted to show you the coolest thing my son made last week. He saw an ad on TV from Home Depot showing this" flower tower" and thought it would be a great idea for our backyard. Since we pretty much paved over our lawn and made it into a giant patio we need to break up the pavers with color. We already have lots of containers but this was cool because it added such instant vertical color. The first day the flowers looked droopy and we had our doubts. But 1 week later and they are already growing and spreading out.
   I know we all love color on this site so I thought you might like to see this......


Happy Spring!

Carolmarie It was self preservation.We had put in sod like 4 different times but our big dogs ripped it up in no time and it looked like a war zone. Now we can hang out in the back and no one breaks their ankles or steps in dog poop! We have more i B'Ques now in the last 5 years than the first 20. I wish I had done it years ago.
