Today I'm sharing my annual blog tour of my sister in law Kris's YARD OF FLOWERS. The tour is always a delightful mix of colorful annuals, perennials and whimsical and rusty junk!
This photo, of a fun raised window frame with bird bath pedestal and galvanized boiler full of geraniums, is in the front yard.
This long front yard bed is a mix of annuals and perennials.
This is the other side of the window frame. The frame is raised on metal stakes.
More views of the front border.
This flower bed is in front of the house with mostly zinnias, hostas and hydrangeas.
The hydrangeas are fairly new to the garden, and the white petals are starting to turn pink. A gray weathered fence is the backdrop to this flower bed.
This eye-pleasing, fun, and junky arrangement sits on top of the front steps.
This is the flower bed on the other side of the front steps. This bed is partially sunny and partially shady so both sun and shade lovers grow here.
Two galvanized laundry tubs and an old stool hold two hanging baskets of dragon wing begonias.
More rusty and metal garden containers.
The largest garden always boasts a salvaged path of bricks, metal, sewer covers, etc.
This garden has it's own little Stonehenge!
The garden pathway 2016. Metal framed bricks with lots of age and character!
This garden has many junky containers of plants, rusty decor and this year a terracotta troll with dreadlocks.
More views of the large island garden.
This decorative cast iron piece is new to the garden this year.
Kris and her gardens were recently featured in the local magazine Simply North. Congratulations Kris!
I hope you enjoyed the tour. If so, leave a comment, Kris loves to read them.
