My friend Paula loves junk as much as I do and loves flowers as much as I do. She, however accomplishes much more than I do! So, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures that I took of her yard and garden last year for inspiration for this spring. Remember, you can click on pictures for a closer look.
She does a great job of incorporating her junk finds into her yard.
I use a stool like this in my storage room to access the top shelves. My Grandma had one and they make me nostalgic. (I guess all old stuff does!)
I thought this shade garden was cozy under the big trees.
An out house never looked so good! The other side is even better with a huge black eyed susan vine on it but I didn't get a picture of it.
I have the doors...just got to get it done!
Can you tell why Paula inspires me?!
I sold a Victorian looking mailbox at a garage sale and another woman in town snatched it up and it sits outside her home in her garden here in town. This rough mailbox is more my style....I wonder if Paula would miss it?!
The best part is this garden sheds that sits in the back of her yard. All decked out. Her husband wanted to haul it out of there!
The real amazing part is that they have only lived here I think two years now. She did everything in a short amount of time. That woman is focused!
And, last but not least...the pond with my little girls on the bridge. Oh, how they wanted to play in that water and throw rocks...nuh huh...not here!
I am looking forward to seeing it this year as she adds to it and it matures.
Around here, we are getting some work done in our yard and garden for graduation. Went looking for flowers yesterday and came home with 4 trees instead. Yeah, you might say I lack focus.
Thanks Paula for letting me share your garden!
