~old hardware store nail bin~

I purchased this old nail bin from a friend of mine who owes an old hardware store in a small town where I teach.  We had all five bins stacked together but the plants didn't get enough light to grow well so we took off two bins leaving three on the pole.   The two extra bins we placed and planted in front of the greenhouse.  Some of the plant selections did well but I have replaced the verbenas and zinnias with white caladiums and the bins are looking better.  I love to repurpose old stuff!!!!!

Restoring an item to another use is a good example of recycling.
