Kiss this frog!

My husband bought me this really ugly green ceramic frog for my birthday one year, and I didn't have the heart to tell him how much I disliked it.

After hiding it away under the bridge in my garden, guilt drove me to trying to make it a little more attractive. I used a small hammer and very carefully chipped a hole in its back, trying not to break it completely! Then I filled it with potting soil mixed with gravel and planted Sedum and Sempervivum in it.

I actually like it now...

Frogs are People, Too
by: Jacki

Gloria, you can never have too many frogs in your kingdom, even if they are ugly! You did a great job with recycling an item that was unusable into a great garden accent. Thanks for sharing!

Warning - sharp edges
by: Pete, the Handyman

Be careful when you plant this planter frog, as the edges can be really sharp on something that has just been chiseled out - wrap the edges in duct tape to protect your wrists, or wear gloves.

Also use safety goggles when you're chiseling, as the shards can fly a long way.

Garden Safe and be happy!
