JUNK IN THE GARDEN

Donna, over at Funky Junk, has once again inspired me to post something about junk.  This time it is about junk in the garden.  Unfortunately, she couldn't have ask for links next week after the spring plantings.  She wanted junk, so I'm going to give her junk--weeds and all.
I have a little garden by my back porch which is where most enter my home.  I have quite a few interesting pieces that mix well with the perennials and annuals each year.

Three of these concrete whatevers were found under a porch when we moved in.  I knew that even broken, they would add interest in the gardens.

This old sink came from my mother's house in Ohio.  It looks a lot better when the annuals are planted.  Really.  I can hardly imagine it.  Now it is sporting a maple tree.  How unusual.  *grin*

This climbing hydrangea is out of control already, and it's just April.  My concrete things may be totally covered up this year.

And not to be out done, I have a furry friend who is going to have to find a new bed when the flowers get planted.

lucky you to have weeds already..the snow just melted here...I call this time of the year Ugly Time. I like the glass thingamabobbies...my dad used to come home with those. He worked on telephone poles. Is there any relation to that???

The kitty is precious. I CAN imagine your garden: Gorgeous!! cap G!

You got family in OHIO? That's just a hop skip and jump from me...if you ever, you know, wanna come for a visit. Keep in mind we live in a teeny ranch house with not much flair 'cept for the people who dwell there! heee!

Cool junk!

Thanks for sharing....Even without blooms, you're SEASONS ahead of my non-existent yard. Fortunately, though, we have natural foliage - weeds, trees, weeds, trees, weeds....
