My 2014 Garden Highlights

2014 Front Yard Border www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
My front yard flower border had a banner year in 2014.  Spring started out very late, cool and super wet, but somehow the extra moisture together with a late season warm up, produced a very lush garden bed.

Fuchsias also thrived on the extra moisture and cooler temps.

Red Crate Covered Patio Vignette www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
One of my favorite summer vignettes was all contained in this red crate.  Even the little ivy filled out nicely outdoors.

The crate was well protected on the covered patio.

Washboard Planter, Garden Typewriter, & Old Crate Planter www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
Lots of unusual junk container gardens lined the sides of the deck.

Pansies and Garden Scratchers on the Deck www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
Pansies in a half barrel on the deck also loved the cool summer.

Rustic Wagon Board & Pail Planter www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
The old wagon boards and a galvanized pail became a great deck planter.  What will I come up with next year?

I hope you enjoyed my 2014 flower gardens and junk too!

  7. What a beautiful garden you have! I love the assortment of flowers and they do have nice blooms. This year is so good for flowers and produce alike. I'm seeing a lot of gardens benefitting from it and yours is just the prime example. I love the rustic vibe of the red crate, by the way. Thank you for sharing such awesome pictures and outdoor decor ideas!
