Love the truck! What a neat hubby for putting it there for you. I especially like the year the colorful flowers were tumbling out. The brick figure is really cute and a clever idea.
Gardener64 so gave you a good inspiration pic. Hope to see pics of yours one day.

I LOVE your old truck, calicocat! When you said old, you really weren't kidding! I wonder what the year was when it was new. Your garden looks wonderful with the pathway and interesting objects. The truck is a treasure, and so is your hubby for installing it for you! Both are keepers!
