Repurposed Plant Hanger

I have been wanting a plant hanger for our front porch for some time now.  I just couldn't seem to make up my mind as to the style that I wanted.

Custom Plant Hanger at Pieced Pastimes

Lucky for me, darling hubby stepped in and got it done.  He knows that I like things simple and uncomplicated. Putting his iron skills to work, he crafted this custom bracket from the tine of an old hay rake.

The swivel at the hook makes for easy plant rotation.  The hinge allows me to turn the pot away from the house while watering in order to keep the porch floor dry.

The gentle curves and black iron serve as a quiet echo to our lights.

I have to say that I really love how it turned out. After all these years together, it seems that we really can read each others minds.

Wishing you all a beautiful Mother's Day!

Saturday Sparks Link Party 421

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 421!

Starting off today's party with never ending guard duty.

Birds on Guard Duty at Pieced Pastimes

It is striking how animals instinctively protect each other.

Much time is spent as sentries, a necessity for survival.

Ever mindful of their surroundings.

Ever mindful of the precious cargo beside them.

There is so much to be gained from the study of nature.  
 
"We don't inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."

~ Native American Proverb
