Creative House Numbers

"House Numbers on Garden Pots and Planters"

For most of this summer's blogging,
I've explored garden arches and arbors, paths, and gates.
And in searching for images to share,
I came across so many crisp and creative front doors and entryways.
 I also found something I hadn't expected:
creative ways to display house numbers.
And it seems painting your house numbers on garden pots and planters
is a very popular choice.

This first photo is on multiple web sites:

While I was looking at all these creative house numbers on garden pots,
it occurred to me that I need to rehabilitate
my own house numbers.
The brass ones on the mailbox have been covered by the Madison jasmine;
the painted ones on the curb have faded with age.
So I'll be exploring more ways to post house numbers.

Join me tomorrow for some house numbers 
that make painted ones on garden pots
look downright conventional.
