Today, I came to the full realization that I have an affinity to short, bendy, elbowy PVC and rubber thingies at Home Depot.
I found this cool looking gadget in plumbing...and knew it needed a plant inside of it for Father's Day!
I cut some screen (fully intending to make it a succulent planting)...and attached it to the smaller end with glue that will work (not water soluable, OK)???.
Was all ready to put in a coffee filter and fill it with soil, but then my friend suggested an air plant so that my husband would not have to really water it at all...you know, like maybe one of the ladies in his office (sorry guys), might come by and notice it needed spritzing every month or so!!!
So all I did was stick the darn air plant in there, and it holds itself upright. WOW...it couldn't get any easier than that, and I didn't even need to put the screen on the bottom since I didn't use any soil!!!
I find it so pretty and has enough of a masculine edge that a man would find it nice on his desk...what the heck, I like it too! This particular type of rubber thing came in several sizes, so you could do a grouping (maybe out on the work bench in the garage)???!!!
Seriously though, check out all those bendy, twisty and elbowy things at Home Depot. If you make a different type of thing, please tell me so I can come an see!!!
Happy Father's Day weekend to all you Dad's out there!!!
