After the rain….
The bleeding hearts are in bloom under the deck among the lilies.
Our wisteria vine is blooming like crazy. This vine is 6 years old and has given us very few blooms in all that time. Last fall my husband cut it down to almost nothing – I thought it would never grow back. What a wonder that trim did for this beautiful vine.
(wisteria is a favorite of mine – I have planted one at every home I have lived in)
Last year it was lush and green but no blooms.
I also have an old vintage door among my foundation plantings.
I tilted the door up against the chimney brick.
Several years ago I planted this dogwood tree…
in an old garbage can…
I dug out a huge whole in the garden soil, busted out the bottom of the rusty garbage can and placed it in the hole. I filled the can with peat moss and good soil for the new baby tree.
The tree has grown wonderfully well and I like the galvanized pot in my garden.
(now I just need to get rid of those nasty weeds)
I use reclaimed items inside my home and out!
The longer I leave this vintage door outside to weather –
the more perfect it will become for an indoor accent.
What a beautiful morning walk through my yard.
