Springtime Painting, Potting and Planting


I love Spring.  
It's my favorite time of year.
Everything is new again.  The trees are budding, the grass is greening and the gardens are coming alive. 
The weather has been beautiful so I was able to get some work done outside.    
I love, love, love my flowers!  
As much as I love my gardens....  I like to add potted plants here and there.  They add color and interest.  I chose geraniums in various shades of pink and red and added sweet potato vine and other fillers to round out the pots.  They look great.
Springtime projects.....
I took a section of old fencing and turned it into a "bud vase - sign".  I painted it white, then stencilled flowers, a watering can (at the bottom) and the word "Flowers" on it.  I then wired on several antique bottles to hold water for fresh or fake flowers.  
I painted an old ice cream parlor chair black and mosaic'd the seat.  It looks wonderful along side the fence.
I painted the boy & girl statues black and my husband made me a little flower cart using an old pop crate. And last but not least....  I turned an old wheel barrel into a planter.
It's looking like Spring around here!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Dear Elizabeth, I also adore spring time... But sometimes the wild weather can be a bit troubling! I can just see your lovely pots and gardens and what joy and pleasure they bring you!
May you have a wonderful season of growth and harvest, in the natural and spiritual!
Thinking of you!
Hugs, Roxy
