I'm a messy gardener. Don't let the lovely macros I sometimes deliver to my photo blog fool you. Over-all, my garden is low-budget, low-maintenance and there are times when I talk to the weeds. :-)

Memorial Day Weekend - Getting Ready to Plant Annuals

Wayne cut the rotting legs off the old picnic table and I decided to salvage it by turning it into a plant stand. This is the before photo. Wait until you see the after!

I went through the garden shed and found this old wooden ammunition box to plant into. 

Another shed find was the kids' old Radio Flyer wagon which we used to bring the herbs and flowers out to the back yard.

A retro plant stand is brought out for reuse for the first time in decades.

After a couple of coats of paint and some things planted in pots and arranged.
