unusual plantings...

Few things in life bring me more joy than time spent in my garden.
I love being surrounded by simple things like flowers, birds and butterflies. It brings a peace that can only be found in nature. Combining my love of gardening with my passion for thrifting and a hefty dose of creativity is the perfect recipe for happiness. In honor of Earth Day I thought I would share some smiles. Here are some whimsical and witty planting ideas...Enjoy!
 
 
weathered flea-market bird cages...

 
look closely...
there's an old pair of blue jeans in here...

 
terra cotta pots come to life...
a guardian of the garden

 
air plants play along...

 
and create a beautiful song
on these retired musical instruments...

 
hard working ladders and rusty old paint cans
are given a second career...

 
old sconce lights not working...?
no problem, just flip it upside-down

 
and my very favorite...
old Wellies!

 
it's hard not to smile...
every creature who enters is happy to stay

 
I hope you had a lovely Earth Day!
Look for ways to surround yourself with happiness
no matter how silly it might seem to the rest of the world!
