I found this rusty little chicken wire cloche with bird finial at a local occasional shop. I love its rustiness with my rusty milk cans
I have planted a Mecardonia ‘GoldDust’ annual in a small vintage aluminum pot with bail handle.
The bottom piece of this cool junk garden container is a cream separator. I think the top is also to a cream separator. I purchased them separately.
This junky container is planted with the annual Love Lies Bleeding. It is not yet in bloom, but will have long red ropy blossoms.
I am loving this $5 container of violas that I purchased at Menard's and stuck into a galvanized bucket.
Last year there was somewhat of a ruckus about this old garden bike. It was spray painted white, and apparently "white" bikes or "ghost" bikes are placed in areas where a bicycle rider had been killed. I am a small town girl and was not aware of this practice. I decided to repaint the bike in a terracotta color to match my house's accent color. The flowers were just planted yesterday so they are pretty small. The white spots on the plant are from "Liquid Fence" deer spray. Deer like the new tender annual seedlings, and the spray seems to work for me. I think I sprayed with stream nozzle instead of spray, as I usually do not get such noticeable spots.
My perennial Solomon's Seal are blooming in the north Hosta bed. For more info about this plant, see my post from 2013 here.
Also blooming are perennial Ajuga Reptans.
Here is a nicotiana annual seedling just coming into bloom in an enamelware pot. Behind the pot is a red metal vintage child's wheelbarrow. I have had it quite a while inside the house.
That's all I have to share in the garden for today! I can't wait until these container flowers fill out!
