How To Make a Wall Garden and Save The World (DIY)

It all began with a few rescued side-of-the-road hubcaps. Do you remember my hubcap flower tutorial? Now the wall garden has bloomed, and Flora has been joined by Merryweather and Fauna.

Det började med några navkapslar som jag räddade från vägen. Kommer du ihåg min navkapsel blomma tutorial? Nu har min väggträdgård blommat, och Flora har fått sällskap av Merryweather och Fauna.

Hmmm...I think there is still room for more!

Jag tror att det fortfanrande finns utrymme för mer!

Do you know where the names Flora, Merryweather and Fauna are referenced from? The first person to leave a comment with the right answer will win a small gift from Sweden.

Vet du var namnet Flora, Merryweather och Fauna är från? Den första personen att lämna en kommentar med rätt svar vinner en liten present.

Until next time...
Tills nästa gång...

  16. Love these!! I'll have to "flower bomb" my back garden so I can enjoy the flowers out my kitchen window!

  17. How do you attach the post to the hub cap? These are so cute!

    1. the hubcaps are attached to the wall / and the stems are simply standing against the wall and being held up under the flower - the two are not attached together. I think I need to somehow attach the stems to the wall as well because they keep getting knocked over by the wind.

  18. Fauna, flora and Merryweather (merriweather) refer to colors.
    What did you use for the stems?
    Lovely idea!

  21. If you are using firewall software such as Outpost Firewall Pro, the paid edition of Online Armor and Kaspersky Internet Security or PURE, you can take advantage of using their Blocklist feature that will block connections to
    known malicious URL and IP addresses. B) SEO basics -
    Image 2: Select-'English' and 'All Countries and Territories'.
    This is what professionals do. While you’re at
    it, remove all or fix 404 errors. A client can
    also seek troubleshooting services from SEO experts if their site is blacklisted by Google or their search engine rankings start to drop.
    Enough said. Identify your niche audience and be an active member on the forums and blogs.
    Lastly, make sure that you have a reliable work-at-home office.
    The businesses have understood the need to take SEO services for attaining good
    search engine placement. This helps auto dealership websites rank higher in the search engines results and get more traffic to the website.
    Thus, if your charges are overly cheap, this might cause doubts and worries from their mines regarding the quality of the service they get.
    Still hanging on. Their success is based on how many sales and customers you bring.
    You can Google maps link for your website, which will be very helpful if
    any person search in images sections. Create a general, high-level category in which you want to manage
    all phrases'for example 'global,' 'online,' 'channel,
    ' and so on. Why. With most visitors noting the first 3-5 web links of the first page, further sustained SEO efforts bring the company web link to that web positioning high up as much as possible. However with passing time the complexity in this field has increased and performing an SEO task is not a simple thing to do. They are looking up the the keywords you did research on to find what they are looking for. SEO requires understanding of various algorithms.

  22. As we all know, looks can be deceiving, so I decided to try out the
    question tool for myself. If you encourage your visitors to write their original reviews
    about your products instead of coping reviews from competitive
    websites to show you have circulation and satisfied customers,
    your website is more likely to earn higher ranking in the major search engines.
    You can then take a hard look at the companies that come up for that particular keyword.
    This can be a great tool when selling products online, as a website can be designed to offer either luxury or bargain-oriented goods, based on traffic analysis.
    Since Google organic rank can bring in thousands of potential customers,
    search engine position service firms have made a business of promising high positions in search engine results pages.
    The major preference is for offshore SEO companies as they
    offer SEO at the most competitive prices. While these 5 truths may seem self-evident, it is the astonishing fact that they are contradicted,
    and even outright disputed, in the greater SEO debate.
    Relevant keywords ought to be used in the alt tags. It focuses on
    networking and impeccable website maintenance.
    Numerous SEO services over competitive price for
    outsourcing your site online, but, would it be best to hire the locals
    if the nature of your business limits to your local as well.
    So, most move slowly when deciding on who becomes the company's SEO. If the comments are created for solely promotional purposes, they will probably get deleted. Their success is based on how many sales and customers you bring. You can Google maps link for your website, which will be very helpful if any person search in images sections. And, as more and more companies move larger portions of their advertising budgets to internet marketing, there is an even greater demand for their skills. The sooner a site is presented in the search result, or the higher it “ranks”, the more searchers will visit the site. 4) Managing your online business. When a person enters a keyword into the search box of a particular search engine such as Google, there will be scores of results showing out which are a result of a search engine algorithm devised by that particular search engine. You need the keyword and phrase in both title and description. Never post a half edited article, and never settle for less than your best.
