Remember the old college futon repurpose?
The futon arms were spray painted a light gray. The impatiens have filled in nicely.
The New Guinea impatiens continues to bloom with barnacles and hen and chicks!
Bees are buzzing around the newly opened Globe Thistle.
My four piece sprinkler collection sits in a bed under my bay window in the front of the house. The bed is mostly hostas, Solomon's Seal, and Lady's Mantle. (Bleeding Heart did not make it through the winter).
My kid's used to actually use this one because the water spray was really fun!
A galvanized tub of double, single and variegated red impatiens sits with the sprinklers.
I don't run across cheap sprinklers much, so it's a slow growing collection. I also am partial to red ones. I see them at estate sales mostly. I won't pay much for them because they stay outside all summer exposed to the elements.
I so enjoy flowers and flower gardening!
