I need help to disguise this.

Need advice about building a raised garden bed, double-digging or installing an irrigation system? This is the place to find the help you need!

oh Denise, that DOES sound delightful! I have all the equipment to build and paint birdhouses, as I used to be an avid folk artist, before I got into soapmaking. But I am letting up on the soapmaking now and returning to my other loves, like whimsical folk art.

thanks for that suggestion.

Just love the orange pig....I think a trailing ivy would look cute in the pig pot...it would look like hair.

ohhh that's a great idea. I was thinking some Morning glories, but I think they tend to grow up more then hanging down... at least mine did, but they had something to climb up....

I never thought of putting sweet peas in a pot!!!! what a brilliant idea. I must try this, or plant them to climb up my dead azaela.

You may want to try Sweet Potato Vine - Margarite. It is really fast growing and will cover in no time. That pig is a hoot!!

Thank you for all the good suggestions!....now that I see the orange pig and the bronze, I like the orange better....may have to put it back to bright colors again.

Maybe ivy mixed with a flowering vine.

Love that orange pig! Now you need a purple cow. :wink:

Not a cow but a sheep. In Chinese astrology, I'm sign of the pig, hubby is sign of sheep. (we aren't Chinese, but....)
