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 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 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.

  2. Kris, your garden is an inspiration for me. I'm fairly new to gardening, so maybe someday I can have a garden like yours. I also love to use "junk" in my garden. I recently picked up an old potty chair on the side of the road. I use it as a plant stand on my patio. I also have two high chairs and some old metal containers scattered about my property.

  5. Love the photos and the article...I have recently moved to a new home in Ontario Canada and Kris' gardening style has inspired me to use my "knock knack items into my new gardens. (When I get a chance to start them)...thanks so very much for such a lovely post!!
