Pin It Weekly #112

I don't know.  I kind of love this.  It's a Rain Boot Garden wherein you repurpose old rain boots (trash to treasure!)  My only challenge would be to keep them watered...
It's springtime here in Louisiana and we've been getting those odd days when it's hot and muggy one day, chilly the next, then goodness knows what on the following day.  The only thing to do is carry a sweater, boots, flip flops, and a wide-brim hat and rain gear at all times.  I try to keep most of these things in the car, because it's impossible to know just what to expect.  

Old work boots laying around your basement or garage? Plant them with impatiens and perch them on an old ladder (that really shouldn't be in use anyway!) tucked into a shady corner of your garden....cute :)
Yesterday, 8 a.m. was pitch dark; 10 a.m. was raining and cold; and by 3 p.m. we were begging for the A/C.  Today was chilly and at Caki's tee-ball game I had to borrow Meggan's jacket.  

I'd brought my sweater in and left it at school.  Ahh, Louisiana!  We say, "if you don't like the weather wait 10 minutes."
