I told my Hubbers my plan and put the funnel away. A few weeks ago I dragged it out and asked for his assistance. He drilled some holes, attached some chain and I was good to go! I planted a flowering succulent in it.
I love unusual items in my gardens, feel they bring character to my outdoor spaces. I love repurposing things, too. I bet the original user of this funnel never thought it would hold flowers!
