...and there's nothing prettier than rust and flowers!
The tall copper container was an auction find years ago...but the victorian fireplace grate is my new favorite!
I got this gal from the Greenhouse and I always like to find an unusual plant to give her a fun little "hat"...this year I chose sage (can't wait till it gets a little bigger). The hen & chicks in the old drawers were Cassie's idea...but hers look a lot better than mine!!
A vintage collapsible hamper holds a large planter that's been covered in burlap...just a little more sunshine and warmth and these "million bells" should be spilling out of their container and looking a lot more lush.
This was an old restaurant masher/creamer. Though I've never been known to shy away from some good mashed potatoes, I do love it filled with an ivy geranium even more.
So, look around, comb through that junk-pile...and put something a little unexpected in your garden...and enjoy the wonderful weather!
