This weekend, I planted a small herb garden in the same wooden containers I had used for holly plants this past winter.
The inherent utilitity in not having certain things in fixed locations is something that I am only now starting to truly appreciate (I call such objects "floaters"). For example, the herb containers can easily be moved for maximum exposure to sunlight or rainfall, or brought onto the porch in severe weather or when there's a frost threat. Inside the house, I have a few pieces of light furniture (i.e., a quilt rack and some windsor chairs) that likewise have no particular place. They tend to just drift about and land wherever they might be needed at any given time.
