Paula's Garden 2010


I've been out to Paula's again~my girls played in the house with her boys, she grilled hot dogs and hamburgers for us, and I...well, I walked around enjoying her garden.  Good deal, huh?!
Please note the hog panel bent and used for an arch.  My brother/SIL have done the same in their garden.  It makes a perfect trellis, although, there is a bit of work involved to bend it and get it in place!


In April, I posted here about her garden with pictures I took last year.  Now, I'm trying to include some places that I didn't before.
Don't you love the green tire rim?


This is the feed bunk that sits up against her perfectly junky garden shed.  I love that she filled it with grasses.


She has quite a few boots in her garden.  Just fun!


Lots of gears, discs, etc., here and there.  I think these look great around the tree!


Boy, do I have windows for my own garden...lots of them...still waiting for Will's thumb to heal!!  Isn't it cute how the impatiens are just peaking out?


Here on this old spool, she placed broken tiles in a mosaic around the top and bottom.  Nothing is glued, just sitting around it.  Makes it easy to change your mind then and move it.


I think this area between the trees is my favorite part.  Be sure to click on the photos to get a better look and click twice for an even closer look.


Just a rusty bird cage on a bench...but oh, so lovely.



I'm not sure if this is a feed box or a seed box, but doesn't it work perfectly as a planter?  

Thanks for coming along on another trip through Paula's garden.  And, a big thanks again to Paula for the tour and the lunch!!

We'll be walking through mine someday...The tank garden is slowly, v.e.r.y. s.l.o.w.l.y. coming along!

  4. Thanks for the inspiration! Your friend has a great eye for just the right piece of 'junk' in just the right place! Do you think that she puts it all away for the winter or just leaves it out?

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've been enjoying my look around yours. Love your basement sewing room, I never did get to all those creative spaces. I love mannequins but yes I do find them a little creepy. My dress form is in my daughters BR. I couldn't sleep with it in my room, lol.

  10. She has such a gorgeous garden, love her creativity. the boots remind me of my grandmother. She had an old pair of shoes with "hens and chickens". I will always think of her when I see those little plants. Thanks for the great photos.
