Generally when we have old baskets lying around, especially if they are starting to look worse for wear, short of throwing them out, we are at a loss on what to do with them.
I took these pics in and around gardens in Johannesburg, purposefully because I love the fact that regardless of their age or appearance, these baskets were still put to good use, even if after a season of sun and/ or rain they are definitely ready to be thrown away - but for now they look elegant and have pride of place .....

PS. Evidently if you are going to put pots into baskets, make sure they are lined with plastic, or place the pots into deep drip trays (always check not to overwater!).
