When I look back at that post, I maybe think I like the previous years' plantings better than 2012's. You can be the judge! (You will have to click on the link "my wheelbarrow" above to view the previous years)
I also want to mention that the white, metal round object leaning against the house in the background was part of a vintage hay rake. It was welded together at the tips to make a piece of yard art! I got it from my sister's old farm, also ten plus years ago. It was brown, and I painted it white. Also a favorite collectible!
I used to buy red nicotiana for the larger galvanized tub, but now I can only buy mixed 6 packs. They weren't blooming when I bought them, and as you will see only one spot turned out red in the back of the tub.
The center of the larger tub is pink African daisies. The smaller tub has a mix of petunias and million bells.
I am thankful that somehow the cutworm caterpillars missed these pots!
Isn't this wheelbarrow a beauty? A $15 garage sale bargain from 10 plus years ago!
My favorite outdoor collectible for 2012!
