Did you ever have one of those creative projects that you dreamed up and gathered all of the supplies for and then it just sat there forever after mocking you with its incompletion? I finally took the time to push through and completed two of those projects yesterday. Not sure what that is all about but done is done and here are the results.
The first project was creating ivy topiaries. We dismantled a large rotting planter barrel that contained variegated ivy and a sage plant. I love the ivy so I placed two hunks of it into some plastic pots with the idea of doing these topiaries.
I gathered up the wire floral rings I had in the house. Put some floral wire and pliers in a bag. And left all this alone for an entire year. The great news is that these ivy plants had time to grow and flourish which made the topiaries look fuller upon completion.
The second project was to put hanging plants in my dining room window. I went ahead and purchased several macramé hanging plant holders and bought plants that I knew I couldn’t easily kill. I had leftover copper wire from my now deceased shamrock light sculpture. Two of the plants hung in the window on the same hook for 6 months. But yesterday I finally planted a third plant, a variegated spider plant from my sister I got this Summer on our visit. I cut the copper and bent it and Voila, the plants are finally hanging in the window. There will be better pictures to come but this one is what happened.
