New urn purchase all decked out for summer!

Happy first day of summer! I want to introduce you to my new (old) urn! Let me tell ya, it has been a long awaited purchase. For the past few years I've been looking for one - just the right one - you know what I mean. The ones I've seen have either been waaay too expensive for my pocket book, or just not the right size/shape...or color.
While filling my yearly flower buying addiction at a local greenhouse recently, I turned the corner and saw her - it was love at first sight!She is actually two pieces...two heavy pieces, but the beauty is I can use the top piece in my house this fall/winter - this was the deciding factor without a doubt! I can just picture her filled with Christmas balls and greenery on my dining room table...
Of course her base is wonderful too...sigh.I can't just end there...here are a few pics of some flowers and junk items I decorate with in my yard... don't you just LOVE summer?!
The old scale didn't sell last year at JunkFest - thank goodness! A plant hangs nicely on her.
A farmer's seed separator works so well holding up this heavy perennial...
I'm simply in love with my hostas...and ferns...green and lush!

Here's hoping your basket is filled with the beauty of summer!

  5. Just thought I'd let you know.

    I have fallen in love.

    And it is with a typewriter with a planter for a keyboard.

    I wonder if they have a support group of that?

    Pray for me.

  6. It looks beautiful! I am new to gardening but recently found a nice junky pot that I am hoping works with what I have in mind. I will post if it works! Your gardens look lovely.
