One of my very favorite crafty garden projects is the tiered terra cotta planter.
I first saw this idea on Amy's creative blog, Positively Splendid, back in May 2010; and I finally got around to creating my own tiered planter and checking this off my "wanna-make" list! [Applause]
You'll have to excuse the lack of "before" photos or tutorial. I was too excited about finally making the tiered planter to slow down and take photos of the mundane terra cotta pots or the creative process. However, you can link to Amy's post to get all the how-to's. In the meantime, just relax and enjoy the photos:

Ultimately, it found its rightful place on the front porch.
Here it is with the flowers grown up a bit.

clearance buy that we attached to the opposite brick wall.
By Southern California standards, we're having a
really cold winter.
Which is why I especially like the bright colors I used.
It's a sure sign that spring is on its way.
