Sometimes our great ideas don't exactly pan out.
We had a bench on our front porch. It was actually supposed to be an indoor bench but I liked it outside. However, the weather had weakened it and it was about to break.
Rick had an idea: Let's reinforce the broken part on the front, take off the lid to the storage compartment in the seat and use it for a flower bed in one of our front gardens. I loved the idea!
So, yesterday I planted all of the flowers.
Isn't it beautiful??
While standing there admiring my work, the bottom fell right out of it and the whole thing crashed to the ground. I couldn't believe it!
Rick was working from home, so he came out and we "fixed" it and I replanted all of the flowers.
While we were standing there admiring our work, the bottom fell right out of it again! and the whole thing crashed to the ground. We couldn't believe it!
So, now the bench is in a trash heap ...
the flowers have been planted in other pots ...
and he put together my new bench for our front porch.
He has great ideas! Sometimes, they just don't work out.
Ah, but sometimes they do ...
And, he's currently working on another one.
Rick Rocks ~ Because he's an idea man!
