Garden Hens and Chicks and Roosters

There is a very small little flower garden close to my covered patio and next to the driveway.  It is edged with a pre-fab concrete scalloped border.

I have been planting succulents in three iron wheels in this garden the last few years.  Mostly sedums, hen and chicks and moss roses.

This year I made it a chicken themed flower bed.   I added this chicken feeder planted with yellow lantana on top and hen and chicks in the bottom, and also a pewter rooster.

This wire egg crate was purchased thrifting earlier this year for $3.  The chicken coop sign was made by one of my sign painter friends.  A red trailing petunia is planted in a bucket inside the crate.

I added a second chicken feeder planted with bidens on top and moss roses in the tray below.  Looking on is the large iron rooster I purchased at the furniture store where I work.

Since the top photo was taken in May, the iron wheels have filled in with volunteer moss roses and sedums.

None of the moss rose volunteers have bloomed yet so I will show you the bed again when they do.

So this year I have a chicken coop in the front yard!

  3. I love the chicken feeders and the wagon wheel. I have bought two chicken feeders but there is no way to get one thing done here in all this rain.

  11. Carlene, I love hens & chickens in the garden. Both in plants and statuaries. I have a few. In fact, I took pics to do a post about one of my chickens tomorrow. I have a lot of Moss Rose that reseeded and is blooming now. Don't you love that they do that? I plant quite a few of them in my galvanized containers because they can take the heat. Love your little coop display! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann
