Last year when we were driving back from a visit to a whisky distillery, we passed a sign on the side of the road advertising whisky barrel planters for sale. “Pull in, I want one please!” I shouted, much to everyone’s amusement.
After a nice chat with the whisky barrel man and a bit of re-arranging in the boot, we pulled out with this lovely planter!
They had all been made by a retired cooper and I don’t doubt it, you can smell the whisky in the wood. Yum.
When my mum was visiting we popped to the garden centre and bought some new flowers to put in it for the summer.
They have grown a lot in that short time and it has pride of place by our front door.
I just love it!
