New planter

It’s been a while since I was last on here but I have been busy in the garden taking advantage of the lovely ( if chilly at times ) weather that we have been having lately. looking around the garden the other day I was wondering what I could make with the pieces of wood that my daughter gave to me last year and I thought of a corner planter. Out with my tape measure and my grocery pad and I took the measurements needed. Then to find the necessary wood for the job. A few odd pieces that would do for the back ( these wouldn’t show when planted up) then the decking for the main part and the base. A trip into town on my trusty push bike to buy some corner angles to fix the back pieces together then on with the job. Measuring and sawing, drilling and screwing which carried on the next day ,the planter was beginning to take shape. Once the base was attached it became extremely stable and I was very pleased with how it looked. Looking at it I had an idea to attach a rail along the top and as luck would have it I just happened to have some. Three coats of fence paint later and job done….. just have to decide what to plant in it now.
