After the party I brought them home and added color to my porch and flower beds.
To start the leaning tower, I dug a hole, about 1 foot deep and shoved the rebar down as far as I could. (My husband purchased a bar that is 6 ft high, rather than the 4 ft that I needed) For the bottom I decided I wanted a larger pot sitting level on the ground. I used some rocks, and other debris so that I didn't have to use so much dirt.
I used two more pots on top of that, sitting them caddy corner to each other. Then I started to fill each pot with flowers.I really like the look, BUT, its going ot be hard to water!! I think I filled the dirt to close to the edge. SO!!! I came up with a genius idea. I drank a diet coke!! And then I cut the bottom off of the bottle, turned it upside down, and stuck it in the pot!! Its in the back so you cant see it. NOW when I water the flowers, I just fill the upside down diet coke bottle!!!
I had enough flowers left over that I was able to do several flower pots for the steps!! I LOVE FLOWERS!!! I don't usually spend money on annuals, but this year, I can use my mom as my excuse!!
