The Flu and Potted Plants - Oh Me Oh My

How are you? Long time no see but I'm sure you have been busy on your end. We've been doing things too but really the past couple of weeks have been a bit of a downer trying to recover from the Flu, Bronchitis and Strep. :- ( 
Just hoping our household is on the upswing of things now.
Well my post is pretty random but I'm kind of an "all over the place" kind of thinker most of the time anyway so here goes...
I'm really not that great of a gardener. I try though, really I do! As far as in the flowers and plants area, I'd say I'm pretty minimalistic. We'll call it that since I just don't have a very green thumb! So mainly the flowers you see in my yard are in pots. Yes potted plants. Yee Haw.
I bought a couple of beautiful large metal planters a while back and planted them full of soil and flowers and honestly they did horribly. The rain and weather drowned what I had planted even with rocks placed in the bottom of the pots. So here's what I did next after emptying everything out - I got out my electric drill and randomly drilled holes in the bottom so water will escape.  
outside of pot where I drilled. Wear your safety glasses!
This is the inside of the pot if you couldn't tell. :)
I imagine it will help the next plant I put in it. I sure hope so anyway. I don't know that this little post will help you but thought I'd share anyway. Drilling is an easy task. Let's hope it works. Thanks for reading if anyone did.
Okay now go get that flu shot if you haven't already! You definitely do not want the flu. There is my real tip of the day. Hope all is well. Over and Out!
