My Garden Tour

Our old tub and sink

I used this old rug to kill weeds for future plantings – next years flower bed addition.  That rug was on this side all last year and winter – I just peeled it back and planted (will add to) flowers/plants.

Old bee hive my husband bought me at an auction for $1

Our dear old dog…he was the best!  As I find rocks in my garden, I’m adding them to my path and around stuff I don’t want to weed.
501
I started using old plates as my boarders – with buying out estates I have plenty to work with…
502
I found this little picture/plaque at Goodwill for $1.99.  It has a scripture on it.. “all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord”  I’ve been looking for things like this to repurpose as decorations in my garden.

This is an old rusty “dump rake”  It belonged to my husband’s grandparents.  It was on their farm about 2 miles away.  When they sold the farm we pulled it back to our house.  I LOVE it!

This old bird house has been on top of that bee hive for years.  The vines growing around it is Hops.

busy bees…514

I’m a part of the Barn Hop.  Blessings from Wisconsin!

Beautiful gardens! Do you have bees in the beehive or is it just decoration?

Dicky Bird,
I LOVE your garden. The old plate border is neat. I love how you incorporate traditionally indoor items like the tub and sink into your beautiful outdoor surroundings. Your raised beds look good and the old rug bed prep idea worked fabulously. Thanks so much for sharing.
