Before my husband's MS became as bad as it is today, his joy was working in his garden and flowers. I wanted to share some novel ways he grew his flowers.
We were riding along a county road and I spied this bed. There was a sign that said to take it if you wanted it. I had my husband turn around and get it. He put it in the garden and each year I had my "flower bed". I used different flowers trying to make it look like a quilt. The picture to the left was planted with two different shades of pink petunias.
The bed to the right was done with yellow marigolds and purple ageratum.
The bed to the left was planted with red and white salvia, yellow marigolds, and purple ageratum.
Below are two different years of the rocker being decorated. I found this rocker in my grandaddy's garage
The chair to the right was also found in my granddaddy's garage. The woven bottom was already gone which left the hole for the planter.
I collect birdhouses. My husband painted an old ladder and placed some of my collection on the ladder along with some potted plants
