I had such a nice weekend. The weather in Southern California started out gray and drizzly so I was a little worried about the outdoor plans we had for Sunday and Monday but Mr. Sunshine did not let us down and it ended up being picture perfect.
So many of you commented on my radio flyer wagon all planted up that I thought I'd share a few more pictures of the sweet little corner of the garden that it's tucked into.
You can read the story of my $24.99 thrift store find of the wagon here. I have to tell you, my husband was not too keen on me drilling holes in the bottom of it and plopping it into the backyard but I think even he is pleased with how it turned out.
This little area is now my favorite spot in the yard...
In fact, I took so many pictures that it will take me a couple of posts to share them all. I hope you don't mind indulging me a bit. I spent two days pulling weeds and spreading compost (not my favorite job but well worth the effort) and my sore muscles need some positive affirmation.
I have been adding miniature roses, hardy geraniums, alstromeria, candytuft, columbine, foxglove, penstemun, dianthus and seasonal annuals to this bed for a couple of years now. I love how lush it has become. When it comes to a cottage garden, I definitely believe more is more.
