Today I am participating in Brenda's Summer Cottage Garden Party. Please take time to look at my summer gardens post and then hop over to see the other 9 beautiful and inspiring gardens. We have to thank Brenda for getting all these wonderful bloggers together to share their wonderful garden spaces.
|Enjoy the tour.|
|Besides all the flowers in the garden I love to add a bit of unusual whimsy by adding architectural salvage in with my garden decor.|
|I had this old painted door and added an old drawer to make a flower box at the bottom. Chippy and fun and gives some whimsy to the garden.|
|An old vintage wren house put on an old porch post give some white and chippy fun to the decor.|
|This old barn door made into a potting table adds some color and also a space to re pot flowers and store garden watering cans.|
|My favorite piece in my summer garden is my two bikes filled with flowers. I have this one in the front of the house and one on the back deck.|
|This is the back deck old vintage garden bike. Old bikes with flowers in the garden give a fun look.|
|My back deck is truly a summer sanctuary for me. We have a small table out there for having the perfect summer evening El Fresco dinner and of course my summer lounger a perfect spot for reading and soaking up that wonderful summer sun.|
|No summer reading spot is complete without a cute garden sun hat and lots of pretty pillows and wonderful cottage magazines.|
|This old white picket cottage fence made for a great potting table out on the deck.|
|On a nice sun filled day I will bring out my cute summer pillows and add them to my bench and lounger. Love the soft and comfy look they give in the garden.|
As many of you know my husband is a fire chief so I added a little whimsy by his shed this summer.
It was fun to share some of my summer garden spots with you on this lovely tour. Be sure to visit the others and see all the wonderful inspiration.
