A Bit of Sun

The temperature hit the mid-60s today with some sunshine, which inspired me to finish a plant container for my garden. I've been gluing it together for several days.

All recycled stuff: bamboo from the garden glued to a 2-liter plastic water bottle cut in half. The tie is from the seams of a flea market garment cut apart. I have a whole sack of seams.

It's not planted (despite appearances) so I'll go do it now before the weather turns cool and rainy again.

I get "Pattex" contact cement in Tunisia. It's a really strong, smelly glue. I keep the window open when I work with it and wear a mask, but it's effective. I use it on mosaics as well. I have no idea what the longevity of the bamboo/plastic container will be, maybe just a season or two... so be it.
