About five years ago (I can't believe it's been that long) my friend and I went to Rockledge Gardens in Brevard County. It was a fun day trip with lots of beautiful plants. I have noticed going to privately owned nursery's are good for garden inspiration.
While we were there ,I saw this!!
I took these photo's LONG before I ever blogged, so sorry for the poor shots...I just spent two hours going through old photo's trying to find these!
This was hanging from the greenhouse ceiling and stood at about 5'.
It was filled with air plants, orchids, ferns, bromeliads, and moss.
After leaving there we (or just I) were on a mission!
I needed a birdcage!
After hitting up a few garage sales I found two small cages for $3.
It's kind of funny that I found a large birdcage just like this one at one of our stops for $50. I talked the guy down to $40 but after looking at it for a little longer my husband would have KILLED me if I came home with a 5' birdcage and asking him to suspend it from one of our trees!
This is what mine looked like...5 years ago.
VERY old shots!
I'm getting ready to re-do them again. I spray painted them turquoise last year and I'm WAY over the bright color thing this year.
How I Planted Mine
I used a couple to-go containers from take out. Cut the lid off and put a few drain holes in the bottom.
Fill with soil and plant your plants.
Here are a few I found on the web.
