Is it gardening season in your neck of the woods?
I’ve been biding my time until the threat of frost passed with
with some puttering and playing on my new Potting Bench.
My hubby recently built a potting bench for me, using old barn wood
and reclaimed porch columns. It will be a roomy work bench for planting and projects,
and used to display garden collectibles, like watering cans and birdhouses.
Here she is with all her chippiness, imperfections and reclaimed-materials-glory!
A ‘reliable seeds’ sign and old metal roof tiles were incorporated to add some vintage charm.
You can find the DIY details, HERE.
I’ve been busy with garden clean up and putting out mulch,
but took some time out to play on the Potting Bench.
I’m ready to plant seeds and pots!

And another wire cloche holds a bunny to keep it
from nibbling its way through the garden. :)
Summer annuals are ready to plant to fill window boxes and containers. . .
an assortment of sun-loving flowers. angelonia, petunias, salvia, cleome,
lantana, verbena and fan flower (scaevola).
