How exciting that Celi’s challenge extended all the way to my dear friends back door.
My friend Des sent me the pictures of what she did after being inspired by my post and utilising her birthday gifts to create the most inspiring view outside her back door. The results are absolutely stunning!
I love the zink baths. I think Des planted herbs and vegies in the baths – a modern take on raised beds. So clever!
How awesome are these angled pots. To create this, all you need to do is drop a metal pole into the ground and drop the potters on – couldn’t be easier. Who knew the holes at the bottom of potters would have more than just a drainage function. Think I may try this for a few of my favourite herbs. Thanks for this fantastic idea Des.
Des knows how I love my tea and I love these giant tea cups and saucers equally as much! Think I am going to have to hunt a few down for my garden too.
Des, thank you for sharing what you did outside your back door. Ican’t wait to see your view in person on my next trip to Johannesburg. 🙂 xo
I love your angles pots of herbs very fun and whimsicle.
I have already set a few up for myself Bam – just need to run out and get the herbs. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Those pots are crazy awesome, I love this my friend 😀
And so easy to do – just the best idea ever. Have an awesome day CCU. 🙂 xo
I love the pots of herbs. That’s a great idea. For a small space, Des has a lot of edible things growing. xx
They are fab! Such a clever lady my friend Des. Have a happy day Charlie. 🙂 xo
OMG I am so steeling that ‘pot on a metal post’ idea!! 😉 How fabulous does it look!! Thanks for sharing
It is just the best ins’t it Lisa! I have already set up a few in my herb garden – now just need to get to the herbs! Have an awesome day. 🙂 xo
Well done to Des, it looks lovely. The zink baths and angled pots are very inspiring for my future balcony garden. Thank you xxx
Ooo, I can’t wait to see your new balcony garden Cindy – these ideas are perfect for you. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
I’m in love with those zinc beds. So beautiful!
Some more ideas for your new garden Misk. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Hey misky, How to get your raised beds without them looking like raised beds!!! We need to run with this idea, how about a clawfooted bath? c
Ooo, I love the idea of a ball and claw bath! Brilliant idea! 🙂 xo
Hi Mands, thanks for the mention on your blog and thanks all for the lovely comments. I had so much fun doing this. This area used to have the washing line and a horrible creeper that was home to spiders and other creepy crawlies. Now it’s and area that I love spending time in and it’s become my “workshop”. I plant seeds and transplant them all in preparation for spring. The galvanised bins are home to spring onions, spinach and bean seeds…the entire family is involved in the watering, planting and composting that is part of this “workshop”. The gift that keeps on giving….
Absolutely brilliant Des. So lovely to hear the whole family is involved. I need to get cracking on my little “workshop” too! Have a beautiful day friend. 🙂 xo
A beautiful backyard! The angled pots of herbs are great!
I have already put a few pots like that in my herb garden Angie. Now I just need to get the herbs. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
I agree with everyone – love those pots and what a lovely view your pal has 🙂
The pots are a definite favourite Tanya! Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
What a stunning space 🙂
I will ask Des to send us updated shots in the Spring. Have a super afternoon Tandy. 🙂 xo
Oh what fun. Your friend has such a playful take on gardening,and such a perfect space for all those containers. I love those pots too, I will try that! Thank you Desiree. and Thank you so much Mandy for the shout out, you are right it was a lovely surprise! have a great day.. c
Yay, hope it took away from the passport worries, even if just for a minute. Have a super day Celi. 🙂 xo
I love the angled pots! We have pots with plants all over and around our house. What a great and eyecatching way to add more! 🙂
Hi Bill, thanks for stopping by. You so right that angled pots are eye catching and a great idea for smaller homes and gardens. Have a super weekend. 🙂
What a great space — and spider-free, too! YAY!
I predict those angled pots will be decorating a number of yards. What a clever idea!
Woohoo, always a celebration being spider free John, well for you and me anyway. These angled pots are such a hit – love being able to share new and fun ideas. Have an awesome weekend. 🙂 xo
Absolutely fantastic! I love the tubs but that idea of using the pole w/the clay pots is so creative. I am definitely going to do that myself. Hmmm, now that I think of it, I do believe Niki’s got a great big tea cup somewhere stored up in my attic. She hasn’t claimed it in over a year so I might make good use of that too. What a creative friend you have & thank you for sharing those great ideas.
Ooo, I cannot wait to see what you plant in the giant tea cup when you find it Diane. It’s lovely being able to share new and fun ideas that other people enjoy too. Have a fabulous day. 🙂 xo
Awesome! Long time no see. I hope all is well in your world!
Hi Martha, lovely of you to pop in. All well this side – just a tad cold, winter has set in. Hope you are well too. Have a super weekend. 🙂 xo
The giant tea cups are MY FAV! I bought one and drink out of here almost everyday :). And those angled tea cups.. brilliant. Love it.
The tea cups and pots are brilliant Kay. You must drink a lot of tea – hope it stays warm enough in your giant cup. Have a beautiful week ahead. 🙂 xo
LOVE the leopard pot! FAB. xx
I though you might like that one Kim. Have a beautiful love filled week ahead. 🙂 xo
It is beautiful! I love the angled pots too. I will make one of this as soon as I come back. Thanks for sharing and congrats to your friend Des 🙂
So kind of you to pop in on your holiday Giovanna. I look forward to hearing about your angled pots. Enjoy the rest of your vacation. 🙂 xo
It is always my pleasure, Mandy! I’ll send you a photo of the pots 😉
I’m looking forward to that Giovanna, thank you. 🙂 xo
i guess my mom would crave over the cute giant tea cup pot…..hehehe
I wish I had a window sill big and sunny enough for one in my kitchen with herbs in it Dedy. Maybe you can find one for your mom. Have a super week ahead. 🙂 xo

I love those angled planters too! Great ideas here. 🙂 I might have to borrow some next year.
I think a lot of our gardens are going to be boasting angled pots Kristy. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
It looks like a playful and beautiful garden – and edible too, my favourite kind!
Yes, edible gardens are just the best. 🙂 xo
