Remember? Searcy AR Beautification? A few years ago? Large planters?

planter

Think back, Searcy folks.....

Several years ago, and I can't remember how many, the streets of downtown Searcy AR had lots of these great big planters filled with flowers.  I had the good fortune a few days ago to become the owner of four of them that were once used by a prominent downtown merchant.  The business was large enough to need four to put in front of the store.  They needed a little power washing and now they look beautiful.

They are obviously made of some tough plastic to still be in good shape.  An inscription says Valley View Specialties, Crestwood ILL.

Now I am curious about the beautification project that was obviously being pushed by Searcy downtown merchants.  Searcy Sleuths, do you have any memories about that period of time?

Hello Barbara - The concept of recycle and resuse  came to mind as I read your post.  That's a beautification plan each of us can do in our own homes.

The power washing made those pots look brand new, Barbara.  I'm big on re-purposing.  So, that's a hit with me!

Morning Barbara.

Interesting, we have one of those in our front yard and one in the back.  My wife loves them

Myrl, power washing did good but if you look closely I didn't get the rim real clean!
