I’m having fun using vintage and broken items in the garden and photographing them.
A bird house that is no longer useful hanging in a tree can add just the right accent to a large container of annuals on the back porch. A broken vase or urn can be charming turned on its side with flowers tumbling out.
I’ve seen broken chairs and even vintage beds filled with flowers in the most enchanting cottage gardens in magazines and on other blogs.
It took me a while to lose the seriousness of a proper garden and just go for the joy. I admit it’s a fine line between whimsy and junky but thankfully, it’s a line that’s set by each individual gardener. Some might see this old watering can and see a piece of junk where I see the character and beauty in it.
Aren't you thankful that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I'm linking up to the following parties...
