June 14, 2021

Along my deck, it's kind of shady on one end and kind of sunny on the other. 

I planted an English Ivy and two red seed geraniums in my smaller chicken feeder.

In the larger chicken feeder that I stenciled HERE, I planted two SunPatiens called Compact Fire Red.

I usually get larger bark nugget mulch but it was not available at Menards this season.  This stuff blows around more.

This planter on my peacock settee has three different varieties of coleus.  

This area is perfect for begonias, especially Rieger Begonias, but the deer wouldn't leave them alone the last couple years.

A couple more coleus in chamber pots under the tree.

My small sawhorse has pink wax begonias on top and a Swingtime Fuchsia hanging on a hook underneath.  A Menard's cheap snapdragon basket is in the bucket on the right.

A small Boston Fern is planted in the tall galvanized vase/planter.  I stenciled the old shovel head with a fern stencil from Hobby Lobby.

In past years the tiny ferns have really gotten big in this location.

  1. I love your blog and your junk garden. It is inspiring! You must spend a fortune on flowers every spring

    1. Oh yes, I spend a lot of flowers! My husband is a golfer and I am a flower gardener. It's my summer hobby! Thanks!

  2. Impatiens are one of my very favorite flowers to plant. I have a spot under a maple tree along my driveway where I always plant them. I love all your galvanized containers, too. All your plantings look lovely, Carlene.

  3. so many cool ideas! thanks for sharing!

  4. I use the funnels as hanging planters. I have two of them. They are getting very hard to find.

    1. I have quite a few. But you are right, they aren’t plentiful anymore.
