YARD OF FLOWERS 2015 Garden Tour

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

The Organized Clutter 2015 Junk Garden Tour

ORGANIZED CLUTTER 2015 JUNK GARDEN TOUR www.organizedclutter.net
Let's start the tour today at the front door, on the covered patio.  There were early spring changes to my Adirondack chairs this year.  Besides new seat cushions from Menards, my chairs were given an authentically chippy white finish with Fusion Mineral Paint.  I also painted the sewing machine drawers  on the Red Wing crock table.  Lastly, I painted a thrift shop iron table, added it to the center of a small flower garden, and set a bucket of geraniums on top to add vertical interest to a small garden.

Adding Vertical Interest In A Small Garden

Flower Bed Needing Some Vertical Interest www.organizedclutter.net
This small flower bed is planted with red and pink geraniums, dusty miller and alyssum with two spikes in the center for height.  The little garden is doing well but even with the spikes has little vertical interest.  Taller plants won't work in a small garden, but an item in my shed will.
