YARD of FLOWERS 2017 Garden Tour


A Junk Garden Tour From the Yard of Flower organizedclutter.net
The Yard of Flowers is my sister in law Kris's yard and gardens.  As you can see, Kris, like me, is a junk gardener.  I love how the rusty fencing, turquoise container, galvanized pitcher and stencil all mix so freely with both zinnias, cosmos and hydrangea.

Succulents in a Junk Garden

This photo of a small garden area next to my deck was taken June 9th, 2017, about a week after planting.  Several varieties of annual and perennial sedums, and sweet alyssum make up the majority of the planting.  I also purchased a $13 plastic succulent basket with a variety of different plants.

2017 Covered Patio Summer Decor Video


I was hoping to video my junk garden tour this year or at least part of it.

Today I am practicing with a short video of my covered patio area.  I shared still photos of my covered patio here, but I hope you will click on the video and see the changes since June.  The video is under two minutes.

Today I am sharing my cousin Susan's flower border and container gardens.  While Susan is not a junk gardener, she has a real knack for garden design and art.  I hope you enjoy the tour!

Junk Garden Tour Sneak Preview

Junk Garden Tour Sneak Preview 2017 organizedclutter.net
It seems like I have complained about the weather almost all spring and now summer!  It's been wet, and it's been cool, and it's been cloudy.  While I think the perennials may have enjoyed the extra moisture, I think my annuals would have preferred more heat and sun.  
Today, my very first Asiatic Lily bud opened, so I will be sharing my 2017 garden tour very soon.   Here is a sneak preview of some of the flowers and junk too!

 This simple farmhouse-style desk was in my youngest daughter's room.  I recently gave it some personality!

 Finally, we are getting some warm weather and sunshine again here in northern Minnesota.  Our annuals still need to do some growing before the 2017 garden tours, but for today I am sharing some awesome junk garden vignettes at my sister in law Kris's house!  This is my HAPPY PLACE too!  Galvanized bucket and gym locker baskets!  Love!

Progress in the Junk Garden July 1st


Junk Garden Summer Progression organizedclutter.net
Back on May 28th, I planted and diagrammed my front yard junk garden border.  Early on in June the weather was ideal, but as the month progressed, it got cooler and much wetter.  The perennials seem to be thriving but the warm weather annuals are slow to grow.
