A garden is so much more than plants and trees and grass. It is being surrounded by the things we use and enjoy while we are outdoors. Mine is a simple garden and I love my vintage tools and touches.
I love old watering cans. Works of art in a yard.
Old andirons found in my parents garage. My father was a mason and said they came from some huge fireplace he repaired.
An old green bucket that now holds pansies.
This area of my yard holds all my garden tools. This old galvanized bucket holds whatever I need to lug around the garden. I dare say it will outlast any plastic bucket you'd buy today.
Old rusted shovels, long past their use are now decor for my shed.
These were used in this very yard by my husband's grandmother, a prolific gardener and planter of way too many orange trees.
Our cast iron bench that is so heavy it takes two to move it and a not so vintage kitty.
