The old wagon wheel plays really nice with the old rustic handles of the wheelbarrow. Two cool things for the price of one vignette!
Flowers gone mad really seem to enjoy this little space. The grapevine above needs to be trimmed down ALOT however its been worth the effort. The flowers love the added protection.
These guys get miracle grow chemical feed once a week to keep them healthy and happy.
Wheelbarrow handles become a means of holding the status in its perfect place. The wheel just simply makes a cool backdrop. Love the rustic lines.
I love to plant trailing types right against an edge to encourage them to spill right on over. I also like to cram the plants when new so they fill in every nook and cranny, offering the best colour impact.
Other than the obvious geraniums, lobelia and status, please dont ask me what the rest of these plants are called. I have no idea. They were on sale and I simply threw it in all together hoping for the best. I really like how the colour variation turned out.
Oops! Forgot to water the soil before this pic went up. Always water your soil before a photo shoot. Theres todays free photo tip for you. Now if anyone can tell me how to make these photos to show clear on JMS, Id forever be your friend.

Somewhere underneath these summertime blooms gone wild is an old wheelbarrow. It use to be a weird yellow colour so I simply painted the base with white and left the rest rusty and in it's natural state.

The wagon wheel adds a tiny bit more interest to this little outdoor vignette.

Just goes to prove... flowers go better with junk.

JunkArchitect writes: FJD, it all looks fantastic together. What a great bunch of garden junk. Don’t feel bad, I don’t know the names of any of the plants or flowers I buy. I don’t even look at the little plastic thing sticking out of the pot. If it’s priced at $1.88 it goes in the cart.
