Mini Garden Tour and a new Basket

                                     Welcome !

                       Can you believe it's Friday already!!

                       This week has flown by......

When out antiquing one day last week we came upon a cute little town north west of us.

                                   Cute small country style stores....

One that caught my eye was a garden shop with all these unique displays.

                                     Look what I brought home.

              The basket is what sold me....inside a variety of plants and one
                      broken winged angel....covered in moss and
                                      strips of birch bark.


                               Perfect for my front entrance.

                   I decided to forgo the basket in the large black urn and
                            planted a blue hydrangea bush. It's just started to
                     produce it's blooms ...I'll show you progress in another post.

                               A cute aged bistro chair with a pink geranium.

                               My bench holds colourful cushions.

                                     Beautiful colour in my wall hanger on the garage.

                    My side garden facing the east is finally showing some
                                     foliage ....notice the urn with the all the floweres.
                                       now look again.....see anything different.

                                           Yup!! Painted the urn .......

                              A grouping of sap pails and my weathered welcome sign.

                                           Love the colour of my bush that covers the well.

                                               Look beyond and you will see another find.

                                                          My concrete bird bath.

                                   Now that was a buy at $40.00. Been looking for a number
                                       of years for an old one and finally I found this one.

                                            How's your gardens growing?

                                           Thanks for stopping by!
                              Love hearing from you, leave a comment!
