Today's photo is from Jan Meissner in Avon, Ohio. She says, "Antique bird cages make great planters for succulents. This cage sits out all year long, (for 2 winters so far) and the only upkeep is a daily spray from the hose in the hottest months of summer." So cool, Jan!

Jan's garden was featured in the GPOD a couple of weeks ago. Remember this amazing woolly thyme? We'll feature another photo from Jan's garden tomorrow.
