Hello! I'm busy working on the next batch of sneak peeks for Clear Dollar Stamps' August releases, but I had to share my "upside down pot" that hangs by my back door. I first heard of these "upside down pots" from my hairdresser last spring. She had mentioned that she had bought one and I was intrigued by the idea. I did a little research and learned that they were first crafted in Australia and are sometimes called "down under pots". I searched high and low for one, and found several on eBay and bought this off-white one. There are various colors available including colored, glazed ones...but I opted for this flat off-white pot thinking it would showcase the colors of any flowers that I planted in it better. I planted two different color impatiens in it this year (last year I planted another flower that had more of a woody stem -- which I don't recommend). When you first plant your flowers in an "upside down pot", you turn in over, plant your flowers in the wide opening and leave it sitting on a table for 2-3 weeks until the flowers are well established. After 2-3 weeks, you turn over the pot and hang it on a hanger, and in a few short days, the flowers start to reach upward and around the "upside down pot" "bottom"...it's really fun to watch it grow upward and always a great conversation piece.
I hope to have something non-sneak peek to show you in a week or so...but back to work on the sneak peeks for now!
