✿GARDEN JUNK✿ Part 2

Let's take a peek at all of the junk in my gardens!
A stained glass weathervane, which was a gift from my sister.
Petunias spilling out of an old watering can hanging on the lamppost.
Normally I would have a fern growing inside this big metal teapot, but I'm so glad that I don't this year. I'd be watering that thing twice a day, with the super-dry summer we're having.
Another stained glass butterfly that a friend made for us.
An old-fashioned lawn mower. This little area will look so much better once that clematis is in bloom!
A momma goose, with one of her babies peeking out behind her.
Poor kitty lost the tip of her tail!
St. Francis, patron saint of animals, watching over every little critter in the garden.
This cherub is big, at least a foot tall, and yet the English Ivy is about to engulf her!
And of course, the junkiest of the garden junk, my Dirty Dishes Fountain! Not only is it pleasing to listen to, but it's fun to watch the birds balance on those cups while taking a drink. So that's it. You've seen all of my "stuff". Would you believe that I'm always on the lookout for more? Well I am, because I like to change things up a little bit each year. So I have a nice variety to choose from, which would explain why my shed looks the way it does. But let's end on a happy note and not delve into that one. Happy Planting!

I think you should consider spelling it "junque". Every corner of your garden is so full of whimsy and charm!
I hope you have a lovely day, Carol!

Loving the red watering can. You have given me an idea. I have the can and I have red paint...guess what my idea is? :>)
All your garden "junk" is a great addition. Always a surprise to see as one strolls the grounds.

It's not officially summer until the Dirty Dishes Planter makes its appearance! I cannot believe you're always on the lookout for more. You? No, it can't be.

Carol said...

The fountain is terrific! You should devote a post to it and how it's done!
Love your stuff in the garden. Great posts.

I am sorry I am late getting to your blog.
The garden junque is great!!
I had to laugh at the lawn mower. I just bought one about a month ago to put in my yard! I think they are rather neat, but I sure wouldn't want to use one!I noticed mine has some green paint on it, but mostly it is rusted. How about your's? Can you find any paint left?

I love the metal teapot, but the dirty dish fountain is so cool. I really love it! I'm going start calling you Carol the Creative One!

Martha said...

Love it!I saw a great idea on a blog (can't remember which one) that planted delicate white flowers in an old sink and then used it to "plant" broken dishes (broken side down). The flowers made it look like the sink and dishes were in overflowing suds.

is it okay to be jealous of someone's junk?

Sherri Sarty said...

Love, love, love it all...could I ask if you have any idea where I could maybe find the metal teapot? Looking for one for a baby shower. Thanks

Sherri Sarty said...

Love, love, love your great 'stuff'...do you know where a person could buy a metal teapot like the one that you have posted? :)

I'm trying to find a replacement for the stained glass rooster weather vane with the wind cups. Mine was broken recently. Could you please post where your sister got it?
