Welcome to my 2016 junk garden tour!

Since my house faces north, I have shade lovers like hosta, Solomon's Seal and impatiens planted under my bay window.

I have had this potting sink for several years now.  It's a fun display piece.  The cabinet door frame project with the B from 2014 is still a popular post on my blog.

The Black Eyed Susan containers and trellis's are new this year from a garage sale.  The window frame planter was part of my winter wonderland Christmas mantel in 2015.

My front yard border is always a mix of annuals, perennials and junk.  I add vertical interest with signs, a stepladder, funnel planters, and tall perennials.

I use bright colored annuals to keep the border interesting all summer long.

I whitewashed the bench and stenciled the galvanized tool box HERE.

I pound finishing nails in the deck rail and drill small holes in the bottoms of my rustic birdhouses so they don't blow off the deck!

  6. Carlene, I love the idea with the gun rack! I see them all the time and hate to pass them up but I can never think of what I can do with them. This is a great idea! Instead of leaning my sharpshooter and rake wherever I stood, I can put them here where I know they will be the next time I need them. Super idea!

  14. Love your tour!!! I have a lot of garden junk and a ranch style house. I always wish I had a big, old farmhouse where my garden junk would be easier to display and match the décor of the farmhouse. I still want a farmhouse but you have given me hope on how to make my garden junk work!!! Thanks for the inspiration.
