  1. Absolutely beautiful and so fresh and fun! Thank you so much for all your hard work and for sharing with us. You are a HUGE inspiration to me! I have used many of your cheery and farmy ideas for my own yard. I wish you lived close to me so you could help me! I think my hotter weather does keep my flowers from being as lush - but, I am happy to have them! Thank you!

  2. I remember using those wash tubs when my mom washed. I love all of the other junk too!!!!

  3. Your plants/flowers are all so lush, green and colorful! How wonderful! Enjoy a beautiful weekend coming up! Blessings, Cindy

  4. Everything looks beautiful. All the bright colors with the rusty metal and old wood is simply beautiful. You really have a green thumb and a way of putting things together.

  5. Absolutely beautiful - put it in my garden now!!!! Wish we could get the red lantana here in Florida - have seen it so seldom. Have some buckets and tubs - running out today for more flowers - spring has sprung. YEAH!
