Thank you! I have two reclaimed chimney pots with little house leeks in. They do look much better in finer weather!

Your welcome. Yes chimney pots come in handy as planters two I put Aubrieta in so it over spills down the pots the others I put pansys or violas in. Yes all plants look better when the sun comes out.
