I decided to walk around the yard to see what I could find for W.O.F. I thought you might think this was kind of weird; not the flowers but where I plant them. A few years ago Craig was laying in the hammock in the back yard and was looking at this tree. He suggested that I plant some flowers in the hole. I thought it was a great idea and I've done it every year since. I have to get up on a ladder to plant the flowers but it's worth it. It is quite the conversation piece when people notice it.
It's still early but in a few weeks it will be bursting with colorful flowers.
And here is my weird collection of garden frogs. This one is for you Margaret.
And last here is my snail planter. He's not weird he's adorable.

Another great garden idea. I wish I had a tree with a hole so I could try that too!

I guess you can hit it with a hose if you need to water it, huh? Definitely a good conversation starter!

What a great idea. I have some hanging baskets hanging off tree limbs, but that is so much cooler.

What a great idea! A splash of color in the middle of the tree.
And of course, I love the frogs..

You are so creative! I love the flowers in the tree! And I have a thing for frogs too - we have a ceramic one by our pond that the birds like to perch on.
