Rusty Goodness Drought Tolerant Planting

Well, let me say that if I had lived closer to this sale I would have owned all of this rusty perfection. I only ended up with 5 of these rusty kettles at $1 each and I love them.  I bought them because I love rust and could envision them filled with succulents.  I finally got around to making one today and this is what I did from start to finish.

Look at this! Isn't it beautiful?
 This one didn't have a bale but it's still cool!
 I didn't have to, but I gave it a light coat of clear satin just to preserve the rusty goodness and...I may want it inside at some point.  Notice the rusted out drain hole!
 I filled it with potting soil for cactus and filled it with succulents that I already have growing around my house.
 Old stumps make great plant stands!
 I'm loving it!

I would have grabbed those

I would have grabbed those rusty pots too! Good idea to give it a coat of sealer, and I love your tree stump plant stand!

Thank you! I picked those up

Thank you! I picked those up in the Lodi/Stockton area at an Estate sale...they have the best sales up there! Like I said...I would have probably bought all of them if I had room plus the wrought iron gates!

Lovely, I love rusty

Lovely, I love rusty too...and succulents. Just planted some more recently.

I love them and that's really

I love them and that's really good since that's about all that will thrive here right now. We're in such a drought situation that our watering is limited so I dug up 1/2 of my front yard and planted succulents in pots along with a few other drought tolerant plants. I actually love my front yard now! I'll post a pic of what I've done soon.
