I have a new favorite place to sit in the backyard.
Not too fancy nor fussy, and just the right amount of cute. And junk. 🙂
The flower box crate got planted and junkified in front of the character building. I chose a more vibrant red this year for the geraniums so they’d pop moreso from a distance.
The soil was in fairly good shape but needed a little lightening, so I mixed in some peat moss for good measure and threw in a bit of homespun compost. I’ll also be using liquid fertilizer all summer to keep the blooms at their best.
And then the best part came. The junk jewelry. 🙂
Love this old white hoe. It is quite the relic! But made a neat contrast against the soil and flowers.
And remember my crusty old wheelbarrow with all the colors on it?
With even a level down below. 🙂
It’s still early in the season so once the blooms really get going, I’m sure the show will continue to improve.
The front yard is also currently being turned upside down. We are on a roll! Hopefully a reveal is in the near future there too. So while we’re in the thick of it…
… at least I have a pretty place to sit and rest up. 🙂
