Since we have tree trunks that have roots above the ground I filled it in between the raised roots with some Irises I dug up and of course took soil they were growing in...Maybe they will grow there. My sister bought me the cute Rusty looking Rooster and a friend made me the Squirrels a few years ago.
I love this little bike that one of my son's bought for me a few years ago on Mothers Day (Actually he bought me 2) and I will be putting plants in the baskets after Easter. I thought I would pick up some of the many pine cones we have in the yard and use for a decorative type of mulch. I need to pick up some more and finish filling it in. The little boy with the dog reminds me of one of my sons...that is how I would have found him in the yard when he wanted to take a rest with the dog :)
This is in front of the fence we have for the pups and I have started some gourd seeds and some melons...When they get big enough to transplant they will go in the garden. The little boy in the wagon also reminds me of one of my sons that loved his wagon (Yes I have 8 sons...so have lots of memories)
This is some enamelware dish pans from many years ago and also have flower seeds in them. The Marigolds and one other one are already popping up..Maybe it will help keep the mosquitos away from my pups. Have an old hand pump there just for decoration even though the handle is missing...maybe I will find one some place :)
I love this planter that another son bought me for MD a few years ago. It has 3 terra cotta planters in the rack but I am going to wait and put some plants in it. Have to buy the right plants since they can't get real tall and the 2 bottom planters don't get a lot of sun :)
That is an old wicker head board for a twin bed that I picked up on the side of the road a few years ago. I thought it looked nice behind the planter with the little Angels around it.
I will be taking more pictures if flowers start growing soon
