Whimsy in the Garden

Whether you have a small balcony garden or a spacious front and backyard, adding your creative touches with practical and pretty collectibles and found "pieces"  that you turn into garden art add interest and whimsy to any space.

If you're like me, hunting down a few unusual pieces that can be re-purposed and upcycled into a functional and unique work of art, is fun and adventurous.

Perhaps that old discarded wrought iron frame that's lying curbside will take your garden from  "meh" to marvelous.

Don't trash that old metal container- turn it into a fabulous storage bin for a porch or garden. My neighbor added a few coats of blue paint, glass and  ceramic accessories, and transformed an old oil drum bin into a conversation piece that continues to garner compliments and comments like- "Great idea! Why didn't I think of that?"

Or create your own wind chime with old cutlery, a tea kettle and a shepherd's hook. Pretty simple and cool.

Go online for interesting ideas, check out rummage and garage sales, and websites that encourage sharing free stuff and bartering.

And share your artistic creations with us. We'd love to see how you marry your garden art with plants to enhance a wall, a porch, as a utilitarian focal point, or simply, for pure whimsy.
