This one if my favorite creation so far. I wanted to have something different and I thought flowers would be a good choice so I built a small box onto the front of this one where I will be able to plant a low growing flower like a flocks. There is also an old glass candle holder on the back right where I plan to plant a small vine that will grow over the roof of the house.

This was made from “recycled” wood from my local compost. The only things that are not are the moss and stones which were bought from my local craft shop, and the base which was cut from a plank of pine.

Creative and innovative design, a living art. Can’t wait to see the plants and vines growing.
