Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

I can't believe how fast this week has flown by!!!  Friday's seem to sneak up on me so quickly lately!  This week I'm sharing a plant stand that I bought at Marshalls a couple years ago.  I'm not really sure how it was supposed to be used but I put moss around the bottom and sides and filled it with soil and plants...
It's been in my backyard for awhile now and it's holding up well!
These are actually old photos...I planted impatiens last weekend but they have a ways to go before they look like this...
something to look forward to though!  I LOVE impatiens, they are such sweet little flowers!

You have done so much with what appears to be such a small space. I love looking at your garden for ideas.

Mr. Birdie has an awesome nest!

Gattina said...

Your plant stand must be quiet old because it has the french lily design
"fleur-de-lis" which is particularly associated with the French monarchy in a historical context.
The stand is made for flower pots. I have one in wood. You decorated it very nicely and the funniest thing is that you have the same bird then I do, although we live so far from each other on an other continent !

MarytheKay said...

Thanks so much for letting me join your linky party!! I am here from Cottage Instincts. And, WOW, I am bowled over by your beautiful blog--and all the great ideas I already see listed!

The Unusual Farmchick said...

I so love things with MOSS in the garden! I am working on a moss covered toad house (base is hollowed out log with a peat moss/cement mushroom shape top). I am planting "chicks & hens in the center and the rest I plan to get moss growing on. What is it about Moss that brings such romantic whimsicle thoughts?!
I think i will be signing up for the Show & Tell Friday. It sounds like Fun.

Love your flowers! I really want to plant something, but we are still having frost, so I think I'll wait.

Thanks for hosting this blog party!

Denise Marie said...

Looks fabulous, Cindy. You always inspire me to get out in the backyard and make it pretty. I always have to be ready to lose a pot to boys in the hood playing baseball and horsin' around but that is ok. lol

Mary said...

Your patio garden is so beautiful, Cindy! What a delight it must be to sit there on a warm evening and enjoy the lovely flowers!

Leanne said...

Blessings to your home from mine!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh I love impatiens too! Sadly, at That Old House, the deer love them equally as well. So, I confine them to porch pots.

LOVE that plant stand; it looks beautiful -- old, too.

And good luck in school! What a wonderful new adventure.

I always enjoy seeing parts of your garden, so peaceful and pretty. Makes me need to get out and work in mine though, it needs help!

Does this mean that you are impatient for impatiens?!

You are just as artistic in your garden, as you are in your home!

As always, you inspire me.

I think it's wonderful you're returning to school. Interior Design is a fun profession. I had my degree, but returned to school years later to learn AutoCAD.
Best of luck!
