OH, THE PLACES YOU WILL GROW!

Sure wish my photography skills/camera was better! Remember the old grocery buggy from several posts back. Here it is today with different plants growing in it. I put moss in the bottom to keep the soil from falling through and planted these shade loving plants. They are already showing signs of growth since last week when they were first planted. I had intended to plant something on the bottom rack of the buggy but couldn't find a way. I may just put a tray on there to hold things I may need. I think it'll really look good when the ivy starts spreading.
Here's the old wheel barrow (flat tire and all). It is amazing how much beauty plants bring to old objects.


I'll admit that I don't usually have fresh squeezed lemonade on the table, but my husband was working on a project for the weekend and I fixed a pitcher for him. I told him not to pour any in his glass before I could make my picture....blog came first!!! We're having a churchwide fellowship here on Saturday and he has been making some games that we'll play. I will be sure and post about it later.

Oh how inviting it all looks with the flowers and the pitcher of lemonade! I love to see flowers in a wheelbarrow especially, but I do love that grocery basket of flowers too!

Have a great day, Sue!
