My mother's favorite thing was shoes. She was a sweet, kind woman who never complained and really never asked for anything. But when she had the opportunity - she loved new shoes. My father on the other hand did not really care for shoes all that much, but was a die-hard gardener. Put them together and you get a wonderfully whimsical shoe planter!
Garden Walk Garden Talk had a fun photo of a shoe planted with sempervivums...
|All of Donna's pictures are beautiful. This one adds a touch of whimsy!|
...in her last post In the Greenhouse with GWGT.
There is another blog called Shoe Planter Crafts that is dedicated to gardeners on a budget - what fun!

Blackberry Creek Home Arts has some wonderful pictures of unusual planters...
Including this boot bragging these beautiful pansies.
So, next time you are about to recycle those Reeboks or shed your Skechers - just remember, they could provide a humorous habitation for some grateful greenery. (It gives a whole new meaning to Nunn Bush!)
Get your hands dirty!
