Golf Shoe & Bag Planters

We were cleaning out a office at our shop the other day
 (making me a creating room, but that's a whole another
 story), and I came across three pairs of old golf shoes.  
Ding Ding Ding!!  At first I just pitched them in the trash 
pile, knowing in the back of my mind I would retrieve 
them like one of those poor hoarder people that cannot 
let anything go.  I had also been holding onto an old 
golf bag (hoarder!!), and I knew what I wanted to do!  

I drilled holes in the toe and bottom of the golf shoes for
 drainage & a hole in the heels so the golf shoes could 
easily be attached to the side of the barn.

I also drilled holes in the bottom of the golf bag for drainage.
  I then added empty water bottles to the golf bag so the bag
 would not weigh a ton & waste a bunch of good
soil, not to mention a great way to recycle!  
I filled the bag up about 3/4 the way to the top, 
cramming the bottles down as I went.

I traded some aloe & fern for some succulents with my
neighbor across the road. She grows succulents like crazy 
& I grow aloe and ferns like crazy.  I attached the golf 
shoes to the barn, and then used some old golf clubs to 
hold the bag in place.  I will see how they grow and 
continue this around the barn!  My vision was completed 
in just under one hour!

I know, I know I did not get the golf shoes level!  Urgh!!
