Bought another Boston Fern for under the treadle sewing machine table on the patio $7.50 @ Lowe's ...pretty good price compared to elsewhere:

Patio Treadle Machine 4.12

Planted my copper kettle & another pot ...an old big insulator is holding the brown tea kettle ...I like to use tea-kettles for watering containers nearby...all thrift shop or garage sale finds the past few yrs:

On the other side of the patio is north porch shady garden...there's a broken crock w/Chives this Spring plus I added my red painted Curly Willow branches that I had in washtub this Winter...
Porch North Side Curly Willow 4.12

Just planted a 'white Bleeding Heart' here that I got at a Mennonite nursery last week:
Porch North Side Vignette 4.12

...and my green totem birdwaterer w/blue glass bird is out for another season...cement 'shroom & planted up this wood container:

Happy GJ gardening, GJers! Jeanne S.

You are the best. Dont ever stop posting. Just when I wondered what to do with the sewing table bottom that I am about to replace for a dresser. Poof! You give me a new idea. Thanks

Love the table! I just finally found a grate to add to my table legs so I can put it outside. Didn't want to use wood for the table top since I wanted it to stay out in the rain. Now I need to put it all together. Yours is great :)

Thank you, GJers! Hope my Bleeding Heart (& luvs above) doesn't get problems like yours, Kathi & welcome back, too!

Should have mentioned my 'rain barrel' in the porch photo of ferns & hosta's...I Googled & found how to make one...& my DH did that for me a few yrs back...it's wonderful...I didn't know how quickly a big rain barrel can fill up fromt he rain on the roof to the eaves! I love it! It's white heavy duty plastic of some sort. Happy planting! Jeanne s.

I have that same grate for a table only my legs are from a sears treadle sewing machine.

Love all your new plants & the pots & teakettles! The frog stepping stone is so cute! We had a terrific wind last night & really made a mess & everything looks so dried out even tho I watered well after I got the mess cleaned up. I had a red bleeding heart couple of yrs ago & bloomed so nice & then it just died overnight. Think it was the heat but afraid to try again. Maybe would do better in the ground. Love your curly willow as it gives some "mystery" to that area. Your rainbarrel is neat!! TFS Jan
