Planted Wheelbarrow and a few junk vignettes

luvs2clickJune 17, 2012

I finally had a little time to work on some garden decor for summer, so here's a few shots.


Wave petunias in an old rusty wheelbarrow


Found the old sewing machine base at a garage sale for $1 - put a new (OLD) top on it. That's a $10 hanging basket replanted in the large basket on top. And just 3 Gerbera Daisy planted in the galvanized tub. They are HUGE! I really need to stay away from the nursery! I have no will power it seems.


An old cookie tin planted with sedum - the old child's chair came from a garage sale. Fence was curb shopped. The liatris, purple coneflower and shasta daisies will be blooming soon.

Lovely decor--I love the watering cans, and the star. I plant my old wheelbarrow every year. It 's wonderful to have a mobile garden. Thanks for sharing. Jlily

Love all of your combinations and your wooden and galvenized items as well! Your little garden area with the fence is going to really be gorgeous when everything blooms!

All your plants look so healthy, must be getting some rain there & the porch is so cozy the little log cabin birdhouse & the 1 by the basket of purple flowers is adorable. Like the antiques mixed in & the base of sewing machine was a steal!! The fence an even better deal!! The chairs(another 1 by garage) & watering cans add so much! Jan
