Lets Call It ‘Garden Art’!

Welcome to the rose garden…. but it is anything but formal around here.
This is where the rusty gold can be found…. all priceless treasures to me.
If you recall, I even have a trellis made from old bed springs!  It’s waiting for roses and sweet peas to climb up it.
My little wagon is full of baby seeds…. so sweet.
As you can see the roses are doing well and should start blooming by next week.
Little bird can you find the gardener?  Lol…
Love these little pink puffs!
These little spheres can be so handy, and pretty to boot!
An old canner makes a great place to grow hostas.  It even has a lid.
By the way found the name of this plant a few were asking about…. Veronica Speedwell.  It only blooms once, but I love that color!
Too be continued…. because yard sale season is just beginning and you never know what I will find!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  9. i just love your rose garden and the wagon and canner for planters!

  10. So glad this will be continued as you garden was a pleasure to look at and stroll through!

  11. This is my first visit to your blog and I love the design and colour; I'm a new follower.
    You have lots of flowers blooming already compared to my garden and I'm going to be checking out all your gorgeous roses.
    I too like to implement garden art or what I call yard art because it's not always in a garden. Lots of things are hung on the brick walls of the house and on my garden shed where an otherwise blank space would be. Come over for a visit.
    Happy Easter

  12. Wow what an magical garden. I am in love with all of your hidden garden treasures. I am drooling over the wagon garden. I will be in the look out for a wagon. Did you have to put holes in the bottom of the wagon? This is such a wonderful post! I would love it if you would share this at our WIW linky party. Hope to see you there.
