Front Porch, Cart, Flowers...

Alrighty, I didn't realize I hadn't gotten around to posting what I did with my freshly painted garden cart and flower pots.  So, for your joy and front stoop/porch/step/thing!

Left side! The hanging pot has a plant I'm trying to save.
It's a vine type plant, with purple velvet leaves.   It looks much better several months later.
Plus robins made a nest in the mums!  I'll have to find those pics.
Hmmm, what goes where?  I did buy enough plants?  
Right side! This was a while back, so the plants have mostly filled in.
And the bikes live in the garage.
I know they are a very humble plant, but I really like marigolds.  These are such a
lovely orange,against the lime of the cart.
My mums!  The insane horrid heat has made them look pretty pathetic these days.
HOLY CRAP! Lawn turtle! Seriously, it was digging a hole and laying eggs.
My favorite flower.  I've gotten a number of blooms out of it, which is awesome.
It just makes me so happy to look at them.
Wait, were did you come from?  All of a sudden my yard has become a critter mecca.


  1. deer and turtles? are you running a zoo or something, lol. i love the side full of brights and your cart. i used the margiold seeds from last year's plants, and they all came up. you should do that, so you can have them for free next year.

  2. I know, right? My animal population has exploded this year. We have a bunch of bunnies hopping around as well.

    I'd forgotten about getting marigolds from seed. We used to do it as kids, although I would pretty immediately lose the seeds. I would like to think that I would be less likely to lose them now...HAH. ahem.

  3. That turtle is REAL?? I totally thought I saw a resin seam... and he reminds me of those statues of two frogs in love with umbrellas sitting on a bench and...

    wait... eggs?!?!

    Pet turtles for everyone!!!!!!!

    The cart looks fantastic and hobbit house is looking oh so cute!

    (that deer is fantastic, too! Great picture).
