What could be better than a garden tour? How about 12 garden tours? Join me and my gardening friends for garden inspiration!
My garden peaked a couple weeks ago, but I thought I would still put together a tour as a recap of my gardens and outdoor vignettes.
I am starting the tour at my covered patio. Details on my covered patio decorating are here.
It's a nice little outdoor seating area with a ceiling fan overhead. I covered the chair cushions with burlap earlier this spring, and made a rooster iron-on transfer on my printer, courtesy of the Graphics Fairy. That post is here.
I found the scale and the lantern earlier this summer at a consignment shop.
I love collecting and displaying vintage garden tools. I posted about this vignette here.
Swingtime fuchsias hang in galvanized pails.
Next to my covered patio is the new potting sink/bench. Here is the original summer post on my whimsical summer kitchen.
The vintage outdoor ironing board vignette with calibrachoa is also here. The original ironing board post is here.
Then there's the "chicken coop" garden with chicken feeders and roosters. These portulaca are taking over. They are all self seeded.
See how this flower bed started out this season here.
That's the front of the house. Check out my curb appeal post here.
The front flower border of annuals and perennials. Do you want to know what I planted here? It's all here in Anatomy of a Cottage Garden.
The step ladder adds vertical interest to the flower border.
Next to the border is my chippy white wheelbarrow.
I purchased this vintage wringer this year too for $8. What a find! These annuals have filled out nicely since the original post here.
A repurposed tree house ladder with terra cotta pots.
Futon ends and Pottery barn miniature chairs beside the deck. Find more photos of the futon ends here.
Horseshoes and succulents planted beside the deck.
A vintage bike on the deck. Here is my recent bike post.
A barrel planter of sunpatiens and lobelia.
The view from the deck to the back yard. "Another potting bench" is originally posted here.
The gate was a recent purchase for $20.
The old barn door and neutral plantings. The framed lobelia hangs from a tree. See how these plantings have grown since the original post here, and here.
My clematis got tangled at the bottom and didn't grow up the trellis this year.
Another gardening season is coming to a close here in northern Minnesota. About another month, and we could have a killing frost. All in all it was a good season!
