One thing I absolutely love about spring and summer is getting plants and flowers out and about to spruce up my house and yard! But there comes a time when it just gets too difficult to plant everything in a garden or around the edging of the yard, so I count on finding container planting ideas perfect for any space! I love the versatility that planting things in containers brings. You can move them around on a whim, you can bring them inside if you want to spruce up a room, or when it finally turns cold, some of them will last for years by keeping them safe from frost by moving them to a warmer place. It’s so convenient! And in today’s “repurposing mindset” that seems to be everywhere, you don’t need to go out and by fancy containers that will set you back lots of money. Just repurpose something fun in your home and bam! You have a new container to plant something in! Here are a few great ideas to get you started…
