My husband and I love to go to a little downtown street festival a city in our area holds each month. There's live music, food and vendors selling everything from antiques to plants. We picked up a chicken feeder that I thought would be cute to use as a planter. When I was working late one day, my husband suprised me by planting it with succulents we had been collecting and hanging it up next to our patio.
We have a chain link fence separating the backyard from the alley that we are in "stage one" of camoflaging. We're planning to plant some jasmine vines all along it, which will look great eventually twining around the chicken feeder. Baby steps!
