How Does Your Garden Grow?

It's that time of year when driving down the street makes me drool over the pristine lawns and lush floral that adorn cute homes.  I think "what do they have that I don't?"... answer:  a green thumb!

So after managing to squeak out some container herbs last year, I thought I'd out do myself and try flowers.  After googling for the 800th time the difference between Annuals and Perennials (which personally I think the terms are backwards but whatever) - I hit the local nursery.  My mission:  COLOR.  

When I got home I set out to do what I know best - look for junk to fill with flowers!  Here is what I did:

I am no where near done as this little arrangement exhausted both me and my wallet.  So while I work on installment 2, head on over to Funky Junk Interiors and see what she's been working on!

If you are feeling overwhelmed with a garden scenario (like myself) - start small... look for containers/vessels/rusty pails and teapots.  If you are using them indoors, simply fit a glass (or I've used recycled yogurt cups) into the item to allow it to hold water.  

Here is a great re-use of a vintage thermos!  Already meant for liquids, this makes a great statement even with the simplest of flowers!

Happy gardening!
