More Current & Past Junk Garden Deck Vignettes

Today I'm sharing another section of my deck's current year plantings and also junk garden deck vignettes from years gone by.

I try to change up my planters, plants and junk every year so my garden tour doesn't look the same.

A huge spruce tree is growing by this front corner of the deck, making it the shadiest part of the deck.

I normally plant shade loving begonias, fuchsias, and impatiens here, but this year I chose to plant
Precision Red Ice Ivy Geraniums. I have found that geraniums do pretty well in part sun.

Early Spring Lobelia are peeking out of the top of the red hen watering can planter.

As for junk decor, I placed three enamelware coffee pot planters on top of a wooden toolbox (purchased for $5 at a garage sale).  The toolbox is sitting on its side and filled with old pulleys. Two more pulleys are to the right of the toolbox, and a red gate with vintage license plate serves as a backdrop to the vignette.

Previous junk garden vignettes on this deck rail:

Above, my birdhouse collection was still pretty small, but I decided to start displaying them on the deck railing.  I pounded a thin nail into the deck railing that fit over a small hole drilled in the birdhouse center bottom

One of the birdhouses was screwed onto a pitchfork handle and pushed into the large fluted planter.

This is later on in the same season after the petunias, verbenas and alyssums had filled in.

This season I planted red verbenas and geraniums, and replaced the milk cans with wagon wheels.

This year I hung a stanchion (it's for cows) between the deck's top and lower railing.  A garage sale toolbox was screwed onto the stanchion and planted with lobelia.

My birdhouse collection continued to grow, and I found that wax begonias and fuchsias also grew well here.

Even more birdhouses, a garage sale birdhouse planter/sign upcycle, black stool and coleus are new this season.

Here a garden chair joined the birdhouse vignette, along with red impatiens.

And this is last year! The birdhouses moved to a different area of the deck. I added a red window screen as a backdrop, a red stool for a dragon wing begonia bucket, oil cans and pulleys on the railing.

I hope you enjoyed my new junk garden vignette and vignettes from the past as well. 

Thanks for visiting.
