Distracting from the well-head

gail_ish(5a ON)May 9, 2011

Hi all,

I have the well head right beside the house, so I wanted to decorate it a bit. I have all these enamel pots that I found around the farm (most with red edging), so I paired them with my old trike & a wagon. To work with the white theme, I've piled my collection of quartz rocks that I've found around the farm, I even have a pink one (that big one on the bottom left). The pot with a spout is perched on the centre of an old wagon wheel - I planted it (after the picture was taken) with red hens & chicks & golden creeping jenny and have planted the rest with seeds.

Here's a pic:

You have quite the collection of items there Gail! Bet they are really going to look great when your seeds sprout and you have flowers in them as well. Love the one with the spout especially and the wagon and trike! TFS!

Wow! Lots of "finds" on your farm! Those old enamel pots look great w/your wagon & trike & what a camoflage for your well! Love the rocks you've found too & added to the vignette! Yup, looks great now & will look ever better w/blooming flowers! (did you make sure you punched a few holes in the bottom for drainage...I've learned my lesson on doing that.) TFS, gail! Jeanne S.

What an interesting solution.

I can just imagine the pots overflowing with red and white flowers.

What seeds did you sow?

Nice little vignette to hide an eyesore (and probably something that is easy to trip over). I like how everything ties together with a common color scheme even though they are such an odd assortment of pieces. Be sure to post a picture when the flowers are blooming!

Looks great, no more tripping over that cement! Love all the old pots & the wooden wagon! Jan

You've turned the well head into a stage for Gj. Great job.
