It’s cold and overcast today but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from sharing my two new garden goodies.
I totally love how this first project turned out! I have been wanting a bird cage stand for quite some time. When ever I run across them they want $150-$200. That’s more than this girl is willing to pay.
A while ago I was wandering through an eclectic shop called, The Planted Earth. Far in the corner of their back room I spied this crystal base for a floor lamp.
Some of the crystals were broken but that didn’t stop me from falling in love. . .and just look at that turquoise base!
Well, long story short hubby removed the wiring and using e6000 I glued the base to one of my vintage birdcages onto the top.
This birdcage was perfect because the entire top removes making it easy to add a potted plant.
Sweet, sweet, sweet!
Now I think we need a bit of garden blooms before showing the next new garden goodie.
Bleeding Heart. . .one of my Spring favorites!
I just bought this Rhododendron. Hoping it does well! Both them and Azaleas kind of struggle here.
Lovely Silver Dollar plant.
My shade loving Lenten Rose have been blooming for a few months.
Every garden needs a little blue. . .Mtn. Bluet and Brunnera
Now for our second project. . .I have had this large mailbox for a couple years. I had thought about putting it on a pole but had never gotten around to it. Hubby did it for me the other night.
We placed it at the edge of our vegetable garden. Handy dandy little place to store my garden hand tools. You can see my leaf lettuce coming up along the wall. And yes, that plant to the right is one of my rose bushes. I had to cut them back really alot.
Lots of space to add some fun new tools!
My Butter Crunch lettuce is looking so pretty. Won’t be long before I’ll have garden salad! Yahoo!!!!
Last of all, my Tina Crabapple just started blooming and it is so pretty!
Hope you find time to get out into the garden and enjoy your ‘garden goodies’!
