Our Garden Made the PAPER!!!

Our garden was featured in a article called "Trash to Treasure"  

YardMD, really captured all our hard work in his story. I feel so honored to be able to share my love of gardening, but even more the love of re-purposing and using them to accent my garden. You can read the story here.

Old Board and Thrifted Frames

When we cleaned out my Mother-in-laws garage getting ready for her estate sale. I found this board and LOVED the color and all the imperfections it held. I have had it for YEARS not knowing what to do with it. Then I was at a thrift store the other day and I found these really cute frames with the letters on the glass that spelled out "garden" I thought PERFECT.

It's a perfect match to the wreath I made from my Mother-in-laws old hose and some of her garden tools.

 Perfect fit with all of my re-purposed items.

Ladder Updated

Decided the buckets on the ladder needed some of my signature color. While I was at it, decided to add some numbers also. Added a watering can with some crystals to the end of it. A garden can always use some bling in my world.

Remember the Fairy House?

Well, we finally got to plant the Fairy House. Hailey our little helper came over and we planted that, plus a few extra fairy gardens. Once you start making these, it's hard to stop.

Front Yard

Decided the front bed by the bike needed to be spruced up a little. Moved some hostas around and added some new ones also.
Decided to plant red impatiens in the bike baskets this year. Who doesn't love red and teal together? It also goes with all the coleus  I planted in all the planters around the house.

New Planters

The new planters I made are filling in nicely and make a nice welcome to people entering the garden area. The Garden Walk is July 12 and I still have lots to do. But I am getting there slowly but surely.
