Drill a hole for drainage, celosia planted to look like flames. Why didn't I think of this?

Someone had a great sense of humor. I love the creative use of the flame shape and color of the celosia. You sure do find some neat visuals of garden related ideas. Thanks No Kudzu.

We had an outdoor spa in the house we bought. It was falling apart. Sold all the equipment on Craigslist, rented a jackhammer and punched out a hole in the bottom (that was actually pretty darn tough), and turned it into a rose planter.

Or indoors, in an enclosed patio or such, even! LOL With some drainage control, of course ...

That's a great idea! We have a few neighbors who have outdoor spas and never use them and might appreciate an idea of what to do with them. Especially lately, since we had a local incident of a bear in someone's hot tub. Once a bear discovers your hot tub, he'll be back night after night.

I just happen to have an old fire pit that needs replacing. Good idea to repurpose the old one! Thanks for posting.
