Sundial Turned Mossy Planter

This old cement sundial (?) was just lying around in my yard. I tried to first use it as a platform birdfeeder, but cement tends to stay moist after it rains (duh). So the birdseed started to decay and turn mossy....voila! Just the inspiration I needed. I've added Dragon's Blood and Irish Moss to make it into a planter.
I'm going to add some ivy that is creeping up around my house to fill in the gaps and cover up the industrial handles (acting as stakes installed by the previous owner).
If all goes as planned, the Dragon's Blood and ivy should creep downwards to make a beautiful vintage planter.
I'll post more pics once I've added the ivy and once we start seeing some growth.
I hope this, my second attempt at garden art, turns out as lovely as I have pictured in my head. I'll post more pictures as I see its growth.
