Re: clay pots/Dillon Seed Co

Eva: Go for it! I think if you are good about it's placement, he may
very well overlook it completely. Good luck! Of course, you could always
go the pink flamingo and plastic twirly flower route first---just buy a
bunch of them and then he might reconsider other less gaudy pieces of
art...just make sure he knows how much you love those flamingoes and
plastic flowers!

BTW, yes I do have pink flamingoes in my yard, you may have noticed them
in some of my pictures...they are a statement in reply to an anonymous
note from a not so nice neighbor who left a note in my mailbox last year
with some vulgar language in his suggestions as to what I should do with
my gardens (which are not neatly tucked up against the foundation of the
house and therefore considered odd by some in our little town!) I'm
actually beginning to like the things...is that a sickness do you

Oh, I know! He's a real drag about that. He doesn't want the place to
look <br>like a junk yard and doesn't get the "art" aspect of it.
Another of my <br>favorites is the 'old leather shoe turned into a
planter' idea. You know, a pretty <br>plant planted in an old shoe. He
won't let me do that either. : (<br><br>I think I may just do it anyway
