We have been having just awesome weather here in Chicago Land. I was able to start my summer gardens.
I thought I would share the front of my house today in this post. The rains were moving in so the sky was gray but perfect to take pictures so you can see the pretty colors.
I did a blue and yellow theme out front this year.
|I will start with my signature vintage bike out front.|
|I am on the hunt for a bike rental sign to hang above the bike on the tree.|
|Old potting table out front.|
|Love this old blue barn door that was made into a potting table a couple of years ago. It has held up nice with the harsh winters and all the watering I do in the summer months.|
|I did the blue and yellow and white flowers to go along with my yellow cottage front door.|
|You can see how vibrant the yellow and blues are this year.|
|This is the old painted cottage nest door that I made into a planter using an old dresser drawer for the flower box. You can see the faint hand painted nests and birds on this old door.|
|This fence piece use to be a headboard of a bed and a couple of years ago I moved it out front in the garden.|
|Every year I have the same Sparrow couple move into this bird house to raise a family. Usually I can capture the female with her head sticking out of the hole. She is being shy today.|
|Hung a yellow petunia bag on this old chippy shutter on the brick wall.|
