Paula's Garden Year 3

I went to visit my friend Paula yesterday again for grilled hamburgers and a garden walk. :)  Oh how I enjoy a walk through someone's garden. 

You can see my first visit to her garden here, and year two here.

A friend of hers gave her this bench because the seat was broken.  (She was actually going to throw it out, whew, good save, huh?!)
Paula's husband wasn't getting it fit with a new seat so she put this plank across and asked him to just saw off the ends for her.  Well, he was trying to skirt that little task and jokingly said, "why, just put a bucket on each end.
Life is Art, wouldn't you say?  This piece is perfect all because of making do and joking around.  

Galvanized pails...perfect pots.

This part of her garden was actually in shade until the pine wilt took all four of the trees here. :(

A bread box turned planter.

Boots and chairs, always at home in the garden.

A "flower" welded by her husband.  Fun.

More fun.

My little one enjoyed looking for the fish in her pond, but they were hiding out of the sun.  It was actually cool yesterday morning in the shade so that's why the jacket.  Such a nice day!

It's so nice to have gardening friends to share plants, seeds, and ideas with.
Thanks again Paula!!
