I am hooked on using "junk" in my garden....and I hope you are inspired.
Probably the most elegant item in my garden is this old stone estate flower basket. Those are antique grinding stones underneath it. I also use grinding stones as stepping stones in the flower beds.
Here's the totally other end of the elegance scale. What do you do with the "ball storage" basket after it's been smashed? Why of course, you plant it on a table in the middle of your greenery!
Somewhat behind this year? Still have empty pots and urns? Fill them with unplanted and uncovered topiary forms. Why, yes! Tell people you planned it that way...they'll never know the truth.
This is a border that keeps on giving. It predates our house by 80 years. Fifty feet of bridal veil that more than 100 years ago was the edge of a farmhouse garden. All it needs is a yearly trim, and it rewards us with this magnificent display.
Does anyone really know what time it is? Not with this thing. I have never known how to work it, but I think EVERY garden should have a sundial.
I guess it's time for me to get to work and plant something in this gem. Another local estate find, and probably the prettiest I've owned.
