    Decided the yard needed a little sprucing up so, I took on a few small projects. The first is a tipsy pot planter that didn't turn out as "tipsy" as I'd hoped, but, it'll have to do. I planted a variety of herbs in it:

    When our house was built, the A/C unit was put out front, don't know why, I'm sure it was placed there for some reason but I decided that it needed to be hidden from view but didn't want to pay what some places ask for those panels that hide such eyesores. All the materials I used, with the exception of some bolts and other hardware, were materials I had handy. And if anyone ever tells you that pallets are easy to paint, they're lying!

    WOW!!! How neat. I really love the pallet picket fence. I didn't even notice it was a pallet till you said so.

    The tipsy pots are neat! I don't think I've ever seen that idea before. Now I'm off to figure out how to do it!

    Yep, you can find those tipsy pot thingys at home improvement stores. I think it is a metal post into the ground. I love to plant some herbs in it and some flowers!

    Novel idea on that CA unit cover! I have one out back that is an eyesore! I wish the companies would make neat covers for those clunky things!
