Patriotic Junk Garden Vignettes

Red White & Blue Junk Garden Vignette
I just picked up the blue gas can last weekend at an estate sale for $1.  The red and blue gas cans reminded me that I had a red, white and blue license plate that I had purchased last year.  Red iron stars were added with magnets along with a Kmart Fourth of July flag.

My fuchsias are starting to fill out, but it is still early here in northern Minnesota.

The rock and metal rooster is new this season.  I purchased it at a local garden shop.  I have had the wooden slat flag for several years.  I think it's great on my chippy picket fence section purchased last year.

This flower bed has a lot of sedums and thymes and low growing ground cover perennials.  I have calibrachoa in the top of the chicken feeder, and hen and chicks in the bottom.

I love decorating for the Fourth of July!
Thanks for reading my blog, Carlene

  1. It's amazing how you pull junk together and make them a masterpiece. Love your stuff!

  2. Really fun little vignettes! I'm loving Patriotic this year! Have enjoyed seeing ideas and finding things around the house to use! Love yours! Blessings, Cindy

  3. Love your garden! I have a question, though. Do you coat any of your wooden pieces to protect them from rain and sun exposure or just let nature do it's thing?

  4. Oh my friend, I have red cans but I need a blue! $1 now that is just ridiculously wonderful. Never found one that cheap around here. Love your fun display Carlene!
