and the bulbs I planted in early fall, have sprouted, gotten taller, and are now just about ready to bloom.
I can't wait!
Earlier in the year, I had the opportunity to pick through an old farmstead acreage, where an old house had fallen and lots of things were left lying on the grounds.........years ago. I saw this old railing and had to bring it home. At first I was going to use it, standing up, for a towel rack in my vintage shop.
However, it just said "garden" to me an I fixed it as a partial fence to go along with the vintage archway that I have placed in my garden. I love the way it looks........don't you?
I also put these whimsical flowers and butterflies
along in front of it..........but I am not so sure if this is the look I want for it. So I might remove them.
If you remember, I love making cement things for the garden and had my " cement pumpkin garden" out by my patio.
I had also learned how to cast cement leaves and to give them unique colors.
But the pumpkins just never seemed to fit in that space...........
So I loaded them up in the wheel barrow
and placed them on the other side of the vintage archway. I think they are still too clustered up, so I may stretch them out a little further.
So now the front of the garden has a lot of decoration..........as you can see, I have Sophie giving it her full inspection. I hope to grow my pumpkins and zinnias here of course, but I am also planning on growing grapes and blackberries. I have never had success with these vines, but I am not giving up.
How about you? What do you like to decorate your garden with?
What are you planning on growing this year?
I would love to hear!
