My Rosemary Pot Make Over

Since it's winter I had to bring my Rosemary and Basil in the house.

The Basil didn't like the move and died.
Darn it - I love my sweet Basil!

I've been staring at this pot for months and I hate it......

So what do you do..........?

Find some burlap in the shed..........

A little bit of good ole Elmers,

add a little string.......


More better!!!!

As a side note
Here in Colorado we have a saying,

"if you don't like the weather .....
wait a minute"

Friday it was 72 and today......
a whopping 14 below!!???


I had to bring my old, man rooster in the mud room last night

No alarm clock needed this morning!!!!  
Wow is he loud!

  1. You really did a nice job on this. Great idea!

    It sure wasn't 72 here this week, but it's supposed to get to 0 tonight. Ughhhh... :)

    Have a great day. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hihih you write so witty. :)
    freezing that is. Here we have had the warmest January ever. But November was the coldest ever. Strange and awkward indeed..
    I have done just the same with pots also. My terracotta pots I use for pelargoniums in my greenhouse. But I have grown tires of the since they hold no water what so ever. So I think they form now on will be used as decoes only.
    Love that little washingboard?? you have on the wall beside the pot there. Lovely.

  3. I can never make my basil last either. But Rosemary is nice and easy. The burlap really adds a nice touch.

  4. That really adds such a nice touch :)

    Of course I am here in Iowa living in the Blizzard of the Century....

  9. Great idea! 14 below? That's pretty cold! Not nearly as cold where I am in the Northwest, but I took a walk today and by the time I came back, I could no longer feel my face... Stay warm!

  10. Like your Rosemary. Mine is in the ground and about 4 ft. tall. Sounds like you had the same weather we had in Texas, 75 on the weekend and now 14. Well at least it doesn't last long. Stay warm! judy
