July Garden Party

Welcome to our July Garden Party
hosted by 5 gardening friends.  

I LOVE GARDEN ART
Do you like to use different objects for garden art?  I do...and this is one of my favorites- an old 1930's wagon.

An antique garden bench with some garden art objects.

This is a basket bicycle frame (somewhere under there) white Wave Petunias and Brocade Wilhelm Langguth geraniums.  I recently relocated it from the garage area.  The little bunny was from my daughter's home that she sold and now he's hanging out with me!

This obelisk has been used for many plants as well as gazing balls a long time ago.

A sweet little butterfly stand planter and a pedestal to elevate plants.

A chippy white rusty stand displaying a watering can full of Flamingo Rose geraniums and white bacopa (which is about to rebloom).  My claypot lighthouse was a fun project you can read about if you'd like to "here".  You can see a Fairy in the distance standing among some hostas!

Another Fairy peacefully content under the giant hosta.

I found this adorable miniature red wagon at Pier 1 which is actually a photo clip frame holder but I saw it differently!  I had Dan put a few holes in it so it can drain.  My little fairy Irish dancer is prancing about the White Chips Campanula- Bellflower plant.

Thank you for joining us for our July Garden Party!

  1. Liz, I love all of your vintage touches. I've decided recently that I will be adding more things like this. Of course, I need more gardens to fill in but gathering some fun items is definitely on my list. :)

  4. Your gardens look so beautiful with your added garden art. Loving the cute fairies and the little wagon is adorable. The decorative bench is such a nice find and adds elegance. I love garden art done tastefully. You have a great eye and a green thumb Liz. A pleasure to join you as a fellow host for this month’s garden party.

    1. Thank you Debbie- the closest I came to a feature was in a local newspaper’s quarterly magazine story focused on fairy gardens a few years ago.

  10. Your garden and garden art are so lovely. It's too hot right now to garden here, but I can't wait for the weather to cool off next month. Fall is planting time and I'm looking forward to adding a few more plants. You are such an artist when it comes to gardening and such an inspiration!

  11. My garden is mostly containers on my cabin's cedar deck. I use interesting pieces of driftwood that I find floating in the lake for extra interest. - Margy

  12. Your garden art and planters are wonderful and I think add so much to the garden. I have to be careful to not put to many in my garden and look like a flea market!
