Decorating My Gardens

I admit it, I'm a junk junkie! I love finding things and turning them into something useful. Here are a few pictures of my junk finds turned into garden goodies. The old washstand was just sitting in the basement rusting before I planted it full of flowers. The empty side is waiting for a water pump so I can fill it with water and turn it into a fountain. I bought the old plow for hardly nothing at an auction and now it's in my front flower garden. The old galvanized tub is planted with wildflowers waiting to bloom. The other pots are wildflowers also. The first one is an enamel pot, the second an old rusty pot and the third is an old minnow bucket, I found on the side of the road. We had two Bradford Pear trees to get blowed down by a storm and I had my husband save part of it. I think it looks perfect with the birdhouse my son made me on it. It always so much fun to turn garbage into something useful. My basement is full of treasures waiting for me to gussy it up. Happy junk hunting!!!
