Cottage Garden-2

This is my second post on vintage items in a cottage garden. I picked this bike up for $5 at a rummage sale. I had to go back to town with a pickup to haul it home, but it was worth it. I put a basket on the front...It reminds me of the Wizard of Oz. "I'll get you (the bike that is) my pretty!


An old garden pump sits in my garden. I dug down a little in the soil, stacked bricks with a little cement between, placed the pump down in the dirt a little, added more dirt and planted pansies.


An old wicker chair lost it's seat, so I positioned a pot inside that is planted with ivy. We have had so much rain that the ivy started to turn yellow:(


"How does your garden grow", antique wooden box. My niece made this beauty. I plan to add geraniums.


In the corner of the garden is an old wooden post. It once was the home to a country mailbox.


I have three garden boxes made of railroad ties. They are planted with lettuce, peas, spinach, radishes, dill, sunflowers, and a few herbs.



The church building in the background is my studio. This is where my items are crafted. LOOK AWAY FROM THE MUCH NEEDED PAINT JOB! An old bench also sits under a window.
