Well, as you already know from the greenhouse touring post, I buckled down and bought some new flowers for summer.
With a freshly pressure washed shed, this thing was ready for blooms!
I really did love last summer’s Potting Shed rake sign with the potted flowers, however I wanted to do something slightly different this year.
What to do… what to do… I thought of shelves and hanging pots with twine and plants inside each window pane… play play play.
I even hauled in the She Shed sign, placing it in a few positions here and there, but… I dunno. I had a standard hung sign last year… I wanted a more unique twist.
Until I leaned the old white Potting Shed sign against the wall, and thought… hey, that could be a shutter!
Happy mistakes make me happy.
And now you’re going to get flooded with pretty pictures because it was hard to stop shooting!
I can’t think of anything much prettier than flowers against rustic junk.
I immediately fell in love with the shutter idea. It gave the window a whole new look, and ya gotta admit, this shutter has style!

The old rake that was on the Potting Shed sign was moved onto the shed wall to hang other antique gardening tools.
I love how the rusty tool patina blends in with the shed siding. They add some interesting detail, but not in a blatant way.
The plants and shutters still steal the show.
The bright sunshine broke out for a spell, and I really though it would wash out the photo, but I think it added a little bling!
It was the perfect day to play in the backyard garden. I was really needing a day to putter around with no real structure in sight. No phones to answer. No meetings to dash to.
The homemade potato soup for dinner was waiting in the fridge, so no big plans were even needed for that.
Today just did my heart a whole lotta good!
Oh! And yesterday, I went out to dinner with my sis and her hubby, then I hit the movie Maudie.
Goodness… Maudie is a MUST see! Go treat yourself.
Sigh… Welcome back, summer Potting Shed!
You have been missed.
