This may look like an odd thing to bring happiness but it does!
We bought 2 of these pots and another different one when we redid the plantings on our small patio about 3 years ago. The other plants are thriving but the one in this pot died after being infested with grubs.
It is hard to throw away things like dirt where I live now as we have restrictions on the amount of trash that will be picked up. So I've slowly been adding a bag or two of dirt each week to the trash and I'm finally done.
I decided a lavender plant would work well and a friend offered to have her landscaper son order one for me along with a larger order he was placing. Now all we have to do is scrub the pot, bleach it and rinse well.
I see this patio often during each day and enjoy the plantings and their various flowers. Once the plant arrives we can hopefully enjoy it for a long time.
