This is the deck of the rental property we have and are putting on the market. Note the pipe above the pot. It was white and stood out like you know what! The real estate agent came up with the idea to paint it yellow to match the house, a 1950's retro and yellow and green is the go, and position a plant underneath so the pipe has a purpose. Excellent idea and effective, don't you think?
Also please note the kookaburra. They visit everyday (I'm working there everyday in readiness for the sale) and I feed them, great selling point for buyers coming to the bush. It's actually just the outskirts of Melbourne but to "flat landers" it's the bush. I'd love to hang a rain chain from the pipe to the pot but only seem to be able to buy on line and too late for the photographer who comes in 3 days. Would be nice though. I would like to have one at home so I'll find a spot.
