MY RECYCLED FLOWER GARDEN

My husband and I love to go rummaging at yard sales, estate sales, goodwills, etc. to find things that we can use in our flower gardens to give them that special look. Here's what we found last year. An old window and wood boxes made the perfect windowbox. An old coffee pot worked great to plant flowers in. An old painted green chair worked great to sit the old metal tub on that we planted flowers in. The finishing touch was some old plates we found. These work well in many of our gardens.

Now that looks like Spring! I can't wait to see that when I look out my window. I'm not a winter-hater, but I do love a soft spring day. :)
Thanks for sharing some great ideas!

Hi Becky, Really great ideas. I am always on the look out for things to add interest in my flower beds. I like the wash tub sitting on the chair and the window box, I guess you don't have to hang it. Great ideas, can't wait to see your flower beds this year. Vicky

Your flower garden is wonderfully beautiful! I love all the accent pieces you've added. I would love to take a little stroll through it and admire its beauty. I'm ready for all those pretties to come back, aren't you?
