I really want one of those gardens that have lovely little whimsical features. And I have never had much luck with it. I'm trying to go for the 'charming' look, but have never been good at the idea part.
My niece introduced me to the website Pinterest, and there I have found many wonderful ideas. Here's what I have so far. Some are still works in progress.
|awesome old and rusty red bike|
|baskets to put on the bike, once I figure out how to attach them|
|my Grandma's old laundry hamper, with a plant in it, hiding an ugly gas line|
|a gargoyle I could not resist, whom I have named Murphy|
|butterfly and dragonfly, made from rusty old stuff, purchased at the garden festival|
|new baskets, planted with annuals, to place in the green spots in the perennial beds,|
or leave here on this bench
|little birdhouse from the hardware store, that I|
also could not resist
|and last, my favourite thing, this great old ladder, to be embellished|
in one of two ways, not decided between yet
