A little garden therapy

Oh my goodness has it been hot here
the past few days! You would think it is the middle of summer, but
I digress...

Don't you just love this wheeled metal cart? When I picked it up for $2.00 at a garage sale
last week my intentions were to use it in my booth...
Until today
when I decided my deck looked pretty pathetic
and it needed something to snazz it up.

I love how it looks and it will probably
never go to my booth now.

I had fun adding this and that and the other. lol.

My best friend gave me these garden soaps probably two
years ago now and I still have not used them all,
but I sure do love them!!

You can just catch a glimpse of my white chair off to the
side of this picture. No fancy pictures here today
...just regular point and shoot.

I also remembered that I had some cream colored burlap so I cut a piece and threw it on the top.

I love this clay rosemary pot too! I actually purchased it with a rosemary plant in it a few
years ago and I just love it....chippy paint and all.

The asparagus fern over to the left side wintered over
in my potting shed! I could not believe it when I
saw green this spring. I need to add some flowers
around it.

I want to wish each of you and fun and safe Memorial Day
weekend. I probably won't be posting again until next week
so I can enjoy some fun with family.

Be safe and be blessed~

Great cart. You just jogged my memory. I also have one tucked away I had in my antique booth. I am going to copy you and use my plants. Love the idea. Thanks!
