The YARD OF FLOWERS is owned by my brother and sister in law, Kris. Kris has the green thumb, the awesome craft skills and the eye for junk. My brother may help out from time to time, but I'm pretty sure the YARD OF FLOWERS is all Kris. Let's start today's tour by the front porch and a gorgeous tub of calibrachoa, climbing clematis and annual marigolds
This flower bed is along one garage wall. The morning glory vines are not in bloom but alyssum and zinnia are filling in nicely. The bed is flanked by two laundry tub planters of geraniums and petunias.
This flower bed is between the road and the patio.
It is a bed of mostly colorful annuals with a few perennials here and there. Of course there are zinnias, Kris' favorite annual.

Here a large galvanized trough of geraniums decorate the patio.
This flower bed is always my favorite. Lots of annuals, lots of perennials, a cool garden path and lots of junk.
This year this flower bed has a fun rock formation framing a small hosta. I love the old brick edging.
More bricks and lots of interesting flowers and decor.
The garden path is a little bit different every year.
More of the path...
Are you catching the gnomes in the gardens?
This garden has a very fun cement bird bath pedestal with a galvanized tub on top and framed by an old window.
Old bench ends, painted orange add more whimsy.
This bed at the front of the house has a dog in deep meditation.
More junk garden decor.
A green iron frog on a log!
This garden has a shady spot so impatiens and begonias fill the right side with sun loving zinnias on the left.
A rusty wagon with junk container gardens of begonias.
A slatted wood piece, railroad spikes and part of a piece of fencing become garden art in the YARD OF FLOWERS.
Jurassic begonias and impatiens are planted in an old stove.
I hope you enjoyed the tour. As usual, it was a riot of color and lots of fun!
