Rather expensive to put some plants in, but very nice

Thanks, Mike. I checked out the website you posted and yes, they are expensive. Too rich for me. :cry:

:sigh:

I need to win the lottery.

:idea: I wonder if we could make something like those illuminated containers. Then we wouldn't have to buy them.......hmmmm.......

Crazy expensive! The would look lovely at night, but not sure how they would be in the day...would they be transparent? Or maybe opaque? I wouldn't want them to look like cheap plastic and with them being a light color they would look very dirty very fast. Not my thing...not for half the price. I can get lovely stone planters that last for decades for that price.
