Since we are building our cocoon of trees in the backyard to shield us from the dogs that seem to be multiplying on all sides of us at an alarming rate, we have been tackling many an outdoor gardening project. I am hoping that eventually, out of this cocoon, our backyard will emerge a butterfly. We will see. I just potted up a 20 inch pot with some grasses, coleus, and impatiens and it is filling in our one big gap nicely. I also made a Bamboo Trellis to help my poor wisteria become less mangled and posted it on Hometalk.
Hometalk is an amazingly creative and diverse community online where you can get advice about projects around your home or post projects that provide inspiration to others in the community. It is similar to other sites in that you can create clipboards of similar projects to help you stay organized.
The great thing about this site is that you DO NOT need to be a blogger or have a website to post!
~Anyone can do it~
If you have read this blog for about a minute, you know that I love re-purposed items anywhere you can get them but they really seem to lend their usefulness in the garden. On Hometalk, I found lamps remade into totems, branches into an obelisk, old pool deck steps re-purposed into a vertical planter, doors into a fence.....an old camper turned into a potting shed(...gotta get me one of those!)
If you click on the graphic above it will take you directly to my clipboard and you can click through each of these projects.
(The cool title was added by Hometalk. They are snazzy like that!)
What are you waiting for?
Always being renewed,
