Accessorizing The Garden

Last month while I was waiting for things to grow and bloom,
I did a little accessorizing.


When ever I'm out and about shopping or junking and
see something that catches my eye
I say to myself
"how can I use that in my garden?"


I often use colorful plates, cups and saucers
to add interest to my pots.


Decorative items that are made for the home,
make wonderful garden accessories.
That is provided you catch them on sale.


I found these ornamental wooden dowels
that work great in this large pot.


Here's another one.


Oh, I love this.
I found these little Styrofoam birds at Michaels
Painted them white, added them to a wooden dowel...
instant art.


Here's a little better view.


Lastly, my old blue chair.
This is the third year I've had the chair.
I usually plant something in the seat but found this
pretty plaid bowl and decided to use it
this year.

Happy Gardening.
