Time to plant flowers

Frost earlier in the week - 80 degrees yesterday. And beautiful sunny skies this morning.  It's time to plant flowers this weekend! garden.before Below are some things we have in the shop this week that may give you a bit of inspiration. garden.pink

A vintage salmon pink trowel!  This is the first one I've found.  Have some other nice sturdy green ones.  These old trowels don't bend when you dig into a bit of clay soil like a lot of the new ones.  And we have a few vintage McCoy pots.  I'll be out searching for more vintage pots and garden tools this weekend.

I picked up couple dozen of these rusty orange buckets at the Ann Arbor Antiques Market last month.  Not sure what they were originally used for but they have drainage holes in the bottom so they are perfect for annuals. buckets

Also took in a bunch of old fashioned bushel baskets this week - an inexpensive big planting container - just line it with garden cloth before adding dirt.  And how about using a mop pail to plant a big geranium?

Antique tool boxes are the right size to plop a couple of big pots of flowers in - or to use as a coffee table on the porch!  Bert's tool box is painted orange inside and has the original liner tray.

FOUND has some plant holders made with rulers.  These are manufactured, but we also have yardsticks for those who prefer DIY!
