What's Blooming Today!

My blackberry's are doing well. 
The birds and I are enjoying them.

I love this garden wheelbarrow, if you can really LOVE a wheelbarrow.
I buy florist fillers at the thrift, cut them up and fill the bottom before I add potting soil.  This saves on the soil and absorbs water so it doesn't dry out so fast.

This is an old water thermos.

I think I showed you this.  It's an old public bathroom paper towel holder turned upside down.

I put the florist filler in here.
This is an old oil pan

See the shell in the drain whole?

I'm always looking for old work boots.

This just an old rusty Murray bike with saddle baskets.
I haven't planted anything in the baskets yet, I will.

Linking with Fishtail Cottage today!!

We are having another beautiful day here in Orlando.
I have to say I'm a sunshine girl!!
Enjoy your day my blogging friends.
Don't forget to go and visit Fishtail Cottage and see what's blooming around blogland!

Hi Gal! Love the wheel barrow, the boots, the bike, and all of your lovely flowers and berries! I am almost flowerless, and SO want to get some planted! The weddings are over, and hopefully I can get to some of the things I love to do!!
Have a great day!

I love all those shots Sue. What is florist filler? It sounds like a good idea for some of my things around here. Ann

I love the inventive containers you've used here!

Great ideas on your container plantings! I love your creativity. The shell probably works well to hold in the soil and let the water drain.
Instead of florist filler-- I used crushed up plastic water bottles.
Works great to take up space, allows for good drainage, and it is lightweight too!

pretty flowers!
