Shepperd's Hook Repair

We had a crazy, violent windstorm a while ago and it destroyed my mom's brand-new sheppards hook :(
It was made of a heavy gauge metal but appartently wasn't welded very well at the bottom and it snapped right off.
I wanted to try and salvage it so I filled an old planter with concrete and braced the hook in it until it could cure.

 

I left a little space at the top of the concrete to fill with potting mix and plant some flowers in.

Ta-Da!!

That's a fabulous idea. It would also work well for people who live in apartments and want to have hanging plants on their patios.

I just found your blog today but will definitely be back. Junkin is my favorite pastime.
