One of the garage sales I hit on Saturday had a lot of great stuff. It was not dirt cheap but very reasonable. Like the crates were $7 and $10, the galvanized containers $6 and $7, the stool $6, the vintage enamelware pot $7, and the trellis's two for $5.
First I put some holes in the bottoms of the containers with the drill.
I purchased some KGro (Kmart's Miracle Gro knock off) premium potting soil that I mix with potting soil from last year.
I purchased four Black Eyed Susan vines from Proven Selections Lemon A-Peel. I planted two in each galvanized container.
I planted two Blues Red trailing verbena in my Christmas mantel re-used anchor piece.
It's going to be a while until the Black Eyed Susan vines fill in and fill up the trellis.
In the crates, I added smaller galvanized pails with Pony Tail Grasses and Superbena Sparkling Amethyst and Cabaret calibrachoa. Of course these are just newly planted bedding plants but they will trail nicely and bloom all summer long while the grasses add some gentle movement. The addition of a weathered barn door fills in the blank backdrop areas well.
I'm loving the symmetry.

Grow Girls GROW!
And the stool worked perfectly for a coffeepot of Crazytunia Sparky.
