This has been a mild winter in Texas to say the least. Well, mild by the snow standard, but quite destructive by the tornado standard. Our temperatures have been wonderful these past few weeks and spring seems to have sprung all around us. The warmer weather brings about the notion to start some gardening. We live out on some land, but the city is closing in on us and there is construction within eyesight. That made me want something for my porch to create privacy, grow some herbs or vegetables, and that could be moved (because we are sunset watchers and didn’t want that to be impeded). I thought of a design and the dimensions, then asked my friend Ron Vice if he could build it. And by golly, could he!! He made me the most gorgeous planter out of up cycled wood. I could not be happier with it!
