I love garden junk ...& now I can only enjoy gardening outdoors with my camera. So today was a warmer snowy day & I got outside!

Here's that bright 'red' sun near the door arbor garden!

Red sun Birdhouse Snow 1.12
It was cast iron when I got it & I spray-painted it for a pop of color!

Nearby is Gr'pa's Rake garden...I've shared pics of this w/you all ...Autumn Clematis is the last thing to bloom here plus Mint...looks pretty darn good today, too!

Headed out into my Secret Garden in the Pines ...here's that old Celestial Barwood Door:

Isn't it gorgeous w/the snow cover! Heavy wet snow 2" additional snow this morning.

Remember the whiskey barrel bands 'Sphere' I just shared recently...well, it hasn't been rolled around any yet! LOL!

Walking a little further into the woods & this this birdhouse pops out w/it's red colors on a big old stump ...near another old farm mower blade shown in this pic:

Nearby I couldn't miss my GJ blue bottle fence! It looks so pretty in the white snow!

OK, any of you 'painters,' out there...here's a Winter project for ya ...here's my old window painted & gifted by a good friend ...this is the 3rd or maybe 4th yr out now...loved how it looked w/the snow!

It all looks beautiful in the snow. The blue bottles sparkle and the red touches here and there are delightful, I really love that sphere. I'm almost ready to take apart my old barrel that I use as a stand on the porch to get at the metal bands. Inspired me to search for recycled wine barrels and look what a vinyard is doing! I wonder if they reuse the metal on new barrels as there aren't any spheres!

Hi Campbell! That is the blackest hollyhock that I've ever seen! I love this garden in green and in white!

Yes, I love those dark Hollyhocks ...I've been getting more to seed back in another garden, too. They're called 'Alcea rosea nigra.'

Cold & rainy around here yet... here's pic from the other day...still waiting on Spring ...but the moisture is so appreciated!! Thanks, GJer's. Jeanne S.

Was the moss already on the birdhouse roof or did it just grow there? Such a pretty look!

Some great ideas here! Yes, still cold here, too, and snowing at the moment. Have been in the process over the past couple of years, of moving my perennial garden into the same area as my veggie garden. Will save this page for reference - thanks for posting the pics; it was worth the wait! :)
