Re purposed for gardens

I love re-purposing items and using them in my gardens.

A few this week that I have finished are looking good in their new spaces and purposes.

My birdbath cracked and wouldn't hold water so I planted moss and I really love the way it is taking.




An old funnel fits perfectly in the pole opening and keeps water and dirt from covering the top of the table every time I water.

The ladder looks so adorable in one of my gardens holding a few birdhouses.



Having a good summer and hoping you all are too.

X is for xenial

Letter X is a challenging letter and I searched for something we could relate to. Xenial is relating to hospitality between the host and the guest.

We really enjoy making our front door welcoming to the people who come to visit us.  Summer is here and nothing says summer more than flip flops.


While searching X words, the word xanthic also fits with my post. Xanthic is pertaining to yellow, a color that is yellowish.

Wire cloche

Getting my craft hat on today, been seeing these chicken wire cloches at fairs and wanted to make some for our house.

I bought this large bundle of chicken wire last year to keep the squirrels out of my tomatoes.

I used some vintage hand crochet and ribbon to decorate, the knobs are new. I do have some vintage glass doorknobs but right now they are hiding from me somewhere.






There are lots of possibilities here for lots of holidays etc.

Variety

"Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all it's flavour".  This is a line from the poem "Task" written by William Cowper 1731-1800 who was an English poet and hymnodist.

Some variety from my front yard gives it the flavor that I need.






A variety of color, shape, size to add visual interest to my front door.

Uber

Extremely, cool, very, intensity, and superior are just some of the definitions of uber.

I think my husband did an uber job building these cabinets for our kitchen.





Before new flooring and new hand-made cabinets. We were able to duplicate the original facings on the drawers, however these new drawers pull all the way out.


The new Uber car service however is something I have never tried!!

Tell Tale

The definition of tell tale is an indicator, signal or sign that conveys the status of a situation.

A sure tell tale sign that I'm getting older is looking at the parking lot after a game and realizing it's taking longer than I thought to the car.

Another, my daughter carrying my lawn chair for me.




V for victory
How about the the sign my granddaughter is making--that's a tale tell for sure.

Peonies

Don't you adore the fragrance of Peonies???? I have four different colors in my gardens and I cut one of each for my house.






My Daddy used to hate these because his parents passed away a couple of months apart in the spring and peonies filled the whole landscape where they were buried.

Hope you all are enjoying all the beautiful colors in your world.
