Lilies Among the Garden Junk or Vice Versa!

jeannespinesJune 19, 2012

In the Fall of '09, I moved my Lilies into a separate garden & planted some more, too ... getting a bit overcrowded but doing great this yr! Blooms galore this week!

Old picket fence gate, repainted birdcage & fence wire wreath.

Backside here is old iron wheel, cream separator (planted Nasturiums in it again) & smiley rock face I made from cement a few yrs back:

Here's a fullview...birdhouses & garage sale turbine...still working & lookin' great! I love watching it spin from afar!

DHubby & I made all the birdhouses but one from recycled barnwood & old wood...still holding up good, too!

Gardens are growing like crazy! I'm doing some more galvanized tub plantings ...but here's a pic of the bottom of the 'tipsy buckets''s doing great!

Hope you've enjoyed my GJ'ing gardens! TFLookin'! Jeanne S.

Your lilies are beautiful, love those orange ones. The lilies compliment the GJ so nicely, makes me homesick(just a little-don't like the winter cold) Your birdhouse village is very inviting looking! Love the soothing colors in the last pic.The blue & gray look so good in the washpan. Jan

You should submit to a garden junk magazine- I bet you'd be featured!
