Serenity in a Junk Garden

Back on June 19th, I shared a neutral, peaceful junk garden vignette that featured my newly found chippy barn door.

Now in late July, the barrels have filled in nicely.

Chippy Barn Door Under a Tree with Barrels of Sweet Potato Vine, Creeping Jenny, Bacopa, and Ponytail Grass.


Shabby Garden Crosses
Shabby crosses I made at Easter from door knob plates and an old level.  I added a metal dowel to stick the crosses in plant pots.  Shabby Chic Crosses, here.

The ponytail grass movement is so graceful in the breeze.

I think the whites and varied soft greens make a very peaceful setting in my junk gardens.

  9. Very pretty, Carlene. I am in love with that old door. Are you going to bring it inside this winter? Although it would look just as sweet with a Christmas wreath. :)

  11. Carlene everything does look so pretty. I was wondering the same thing as Vickie. Are you going to use that door and barrels for Christmas. The possibilities are endless.
