Something From Nothing ~ or how I replaced nothing with dead stuff.



My potting shed's flower boxes has been empty all summer...



too much blogging ~ not enough gardening...



but for the last two weeks Mr. Anything Goes Here and I have been cleaning up the flower beds...



{nothing
in these either...}



{didn't put those watering cans to much use...}




and I put some of the garden debris in the flower boxes ~ so they would look pretty for a day or two....

  1. Yes, too much blogging. But I love it. Why is it so addicting? I'm glad there are others with the same interest. I wake up and wonder who posted during the night?
    Fun Friday to you!

  2. That is such a darling post! My favorite picture is the last one with all of your garden rakes together! I have only blogged since June and I am addicted too! Waiting for the next post is like waiting for the phone to ring...you just want to say more and see more of what everyone else is doing! Bisous... Julie Marie

  4. I enjoyed your post and loved the pictures. I also have to breath a little sigh of relief to know that I am not the only blog addicted person out there! Everyday my son will ask how many "new friends" I have...don't you love a teenager!! Anyway, I always enjoy reading your posts, thanks for fueling my addiction.

  5. It's amazing how much time blogging takes. I am so jealous. I want a potting shed! You have done a great job of making it look so sweet. I love the blue shutters.

  6. Hey Joan,
    What has it been about this summer? It has gone sooo fast, seems like it should still be May, or June...September, no way. I think a lot of us are having the 'Flower Box Blues'. Soon, here, we will have frost, and the '09 growing season will be gone...
    Your all organized, and it looks beautiful. I'm trying to do the same, our garden goodies will be there for us next spring, and the race will be on, once again!

  7. I've never seen such nice looking garde "debris"! All of your pots stacked up on the potting bench is a work of art in itself.

  10. I hear you! I put out a few things close to the house in beds that would not require a lot of work. But next yr. with health improving I hope to be able to do more. I miss it, use to love to do it. Check out the project I did with clay pots...might want to use some of those empty ones like this ...

  11. Smile, smile... when I read "too much blogging ~ not enough gardening." Creative solution though!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  12. Love your zincs, and aqua shutters. Cute post!

  13. Great to see that too much blogging and not enough doing is a common thread for many of us.

    Mind you, your photo of all the pots and watering cans is calendar-worth in its own right. Seriously, it looks like something out of the Pottery Barn catalog. Very nice.

  14. I love the color of your shutters! And that picture of all the clay pots is stunning! It looks straight out of Country Living magazine!
    Have a great weekend, Joan!

  15. I just started blogging a couple weeks ago, and already have added a second one on a different subject. I'm still at the stage of looking for great blogs to follow (like yours) and so I spend way too much time clicking links from other blogs or clicking the "next blog" button. If I'm not doing that, I'm planning the next entry for my own blogs. It is addictive. I love your title on this one, and the flowers look great!

  16. I think I need some aqua shutter too. They make the "debris" look happy.

    Here's to creative solutions!
    Cheers,

  18. Enjoyed your post...great pictures. I love your collection of pots. Isn't it cool how good they look all together. I have a 'pot garden' myself. Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend! Come by and visit my blog!

  24. Love your quick solution to the empty boxes. For me it has been too hot to be outside much. Blogging in the air conditioning is more pleasant..

  26. You still did good on your yard and shutters. You are right, blogging can take much time. Nice post.

  27. Very nice. Yes, blogging takes alot of time. My garden was awful this year, too much rain.

  28. Your temporary window boxes are beautiful! Your "yard waste" is a lot prettier than certain beds in my yard. Just now cooling off enough to want to work out there. Fall is my fave time in the garden. Love those crisp cool morning!

  30. Love your clay pots all lined up on the shelf and your watering cans. Wow! You have a few! Looks so vintage, dahlin!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. My two cents is that I think I have to have shelving like that for all my pots!! And soon! How wonderful that looks! Perhaps I will have a potting shed one day...perhaps...

  37. Love your photos and I totally identify with your blogging addiction! I'm jealous too....I want a potting shed like yours! I just have a pre-made storage shed....not as charming as yours. Here in the Southwest some of our prime gardening time is coming up, so maybe I'll be getting a little more done outdoors, but then again there's this blogging thing! lol Loved your cute post!
