Tuesday Make-over

This is the spot behind my little building..
it has always drove me crazy...
I've added the rocks to make a small bed...
added the stepping stones...still not happy
A friend of my Mom's gave me 4 trash bags full of
cannons that he dug up from his back yard...
so I planted them....then I decided to put mulch down

I started digging through my husbands junk
( I'm sorry his inventory as he calls it)
and I found these pipes....thought they would make
good planters.....jew will grow anywhere...
Have a great Tuesday....the rain has stopped for now
we just have a lot of fog this morning...

Hi Deb! Thanks for visiting me today I've got so much catching up to do, been working on my site most of the morning too, I'm sure that spot that you're working on will be glorious when it all starts blooming out

Deb, I think it turned out great. As things fill in it will turn out even better.

I like your stepping stones and flower bed. And pipes for planters is a great idea, too.

Ha! Nice to know someone else's significant other has a 'junk inventory!' :)

It's so cute! I love the painted wall. But, I fear you are like me and won't be happy until it's 'just right'! Let us know if you change it!

I like what you have done. When everything blooms it will look beautiful. I hope you share a picture. Have a wonderful day friend ♥

Hi Deb,
I have to ask, what are cannons? I've never heard of them. I'm sure we just call them something else here up north. I think the rocks look great. I love a natural looking landscape. Hugs, Loretta

Deb said...

Loretta,

I'm sorry they are called cannas, just always called them cannons since I was a kid, they remind me of iris' but get a lot larger

Deb, that is fabulous!! Isn't that just one of the most rewarding things we can do, to change a space from an eye-sore and unhappy spot to one that we just smile to see! Great job!

Deb...your flowers are beautiful! Love that old stump! :-) Your new area looks great with the mulch and new flowers...you've gotten much more accomplished in your yard than I have in mine this spring! :-) Susan
