Garden Goodies. . .

Hello and happy Sunday!
Today I am going to show you some of what I call my  ‘Garden Goodies’.

Objects in the garden that help make it more interesting. (Some things you may have seen before in another post).

In early Spring they are very visible.  By summer many are buried amongst blooming perennials.  Some I can’t even see.  But it’s always a nice change when the flowers are cut down and a new garden goodie is discovered.

Lots of photos.  I hope you enjoy them!


Garden goodies are things that capture your eye and evoke your curiosity


Old push mower buried amongst garden blooms.



Oil can collection.














My mushroom collection.  I just got the set of three yesterday. . .SWEET!



I’m thinking my leaf birdbath is in need of a new coat of paint.



The impatiens in my milk crate got nipped by frost and are just coming back.  By summer they will be flowing over the sides.


I’m laughing because this is my fairy garden without the fairies.  I haven’t been able to find them. I have a crawl space under my sewing room and they are hiding in there somewhere. lol!







Whew!  I never really realize how many ‘garden goodies’ I have until I start putting them all together.  This doesn’t even include all of them.  Some I have shown in my garden room posts and some I will share in future posts.  And again, some are hidden amongst blooms.

How about you?  Do you love ‘garden goodies’ as much as I do?  If I haven’t tuckered you right out, you can see more on my Garden Goodies Pinterest Board.


I will be sharing with these fun parties:

If we weren't in a drought, my garden would be full of blooms, but I can't justify watering.

I got a fun idea from you. I have a metal stake that can hold something so in a few minutes, it will be getting a little watering can to hold.

Gotta love blogging for ideas!

Jann, it's all so cute, but I love that watering can on the shepherd's hook. It's at the perfect angle for the plant! The sink is fun too. :). I have a thing for 'characters' in my garden, all concrete, and one cast iron bunny (the best kind). ;)

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

Hi Jann - it's been a while, but glad to see you're part of the DIY Garden group on FB! They are a terrific group of ladies.

As for your garden's those little things that bring our personalities into a landscape. I've got to get me an old mower!!

A lovely garden, Jann...and oh so many goodies there! :)

Lulu said...

Wow...all of these things are in your garden? They make it a very fun place as much about the pieces as the flowers.
