A little fairy inside a thrown away old carriage light fixture greets you at the gate of my urban garden.
While a worn chalk ware frog waits for a tasty fly to land by.
Found Victorian architectural pieces. An old window without the glass will serve as a trellis for the plants as they grow. And a white column pedestal holds a glass light globe as a gazing ball.
Another  old window and some wooden croquet balls add color and whimsy.
My patio table set with a vintage picnic basket, an old iron fireplace piece and a tin watering can filled with yarrow.

  After seeing some very creative gardens decorated with junk here, I thought I'd share some of my found junk that I've used in my garden.
