One Of Our Greatest Gifts
Below you will find pictures that I would love to
share with you from my front lawn. I will be adding to this page as I get
more scanned. This year I have worked very hard to make our lawn look
special as both my husband and I love flowers. My husband was not feeling
well enough to help me do the planting and laying out the pine mulch but as you
can see in these photos he has contributed a lot to the beauty of our yard in
This is a view of our front yard. As you can
see it is not flat. We like the small hills. I have 4 large planters
showing here. Below is close ups of them.
This planter is very special to us. A neighbor
down the road had a farm and she planned on making this old corn blower into a
planter but they had to move away. She gave us the blower on the condition
that we fulfill her dream of making it into a beautiful planter. Hope she
enjoys the picture as much as I enjoy the planter.
My husband put this together for me to plant
in. The bed is part of a hay conveyor, the wheels in the back are from a
piece of equipment that was horse drawn and used for discing, the front support
is from a concrete wheelbarrow and the tongue is from a big roller. It is
fun to see people trying to figure out what it was. :))
This is a picture of my ground
planter where I am trying various perennials amongst the annuals. Some day
I will get this looking the way I want with less work.
I asked my husband to build me a small wishing
well like the ones I had seen on other peoples lawns. The finished product
can be rented out to a family of 4 for the summer.
This is the front entrance and I have 5 fushia
plants (one of my favorites). The humming birds love them. The porch is
all screened in and we can sit and watch them enjoy the natural
Hope these links will help you make your garden
