A Garden Project and Blooms, Blooms, Blooms

 I went to the local flea market a few weeks ago and picked up this vintage bird cage for just a few dollars.  I had been searching for one but they have been rather costly and selling quickly because it seems everyone is putting them in their gardens or home decor right now.

This one did get planted for my fairy garden area.  I had quite a few different sedum that I planted in an area a few years ago that are not doing well and I have been transplanting them to different areas.  So I dug some up and planted in this birdcage.

It has been a rainy summer and sometimes all that hard rain has ruined the blooms on my flowers but I have managed to get some pictures of some before they have made ragged.

I hope that everything is blooming beautifully at your homes!  Many blessings from our home in the woods.

LOVE that birdcage planted like that - how wonderful! Your flowers are just gorgeous Brenda, I'm enjoying my aunt's garden too, she's had a lot of work done in it since she's been off - she can't do it but a friend is doing it for her and it's gorgeous! How I love summer.

What a glorious idea! This is so neat.

Your garden is unbelievable. What are those pokey dark purple flowers?

Looks like you're doing good!

Have a great week!

I love the birdcage. I have one! I used to have it in my potting shed. Now that I don't have a potting shed, it's in the garage crammed in with a bunch of other boxes. I think your idea would be adorable on my porch! Great photo pictures!

Darling little fairy garden! Your flower photos are lovely. Hope that you have had a great summer. TOday was my first day back at school, we had meetings and then worked in our room. It was a great day! I love to teach school and am so thankful that I have been given this wonderful opportunity. I hope that all is well with you and your family.
