One of my favorite things to put out in the spring is my growing collection of rain boots. These are cast off rain boots from my little guy. Each year as he has outgrown his boots, I've kept them and turned them into planters for flowers. I have a group of three. I drill holes in the soles of the boots for drainage and then plant violas or pansies in them for the spring. I just fill them with potting soil and pop in the plants. Usually, some time in the summer when it really starts to get hot, I'll change out the pansies for impatiens. This past weekend I planted boots for this year and I smiled the entire time. I'm not sure if I'll have any new boots to add to my collection...he seems to be outgrowing his desire for wellies.
