I spied this vintage wicker rocker on the boulevard with a FREE sign on it!
I didn't hesitate
I stopped driving and popped it in the back of my Volvo wagon.
It took two coats of paint
a seat of plywood cut to fit by Mr. HB (thank you darling!)
and a cushion will be purchased at Pier One
to match the ones on my front porch.
I am going to put the new rocker in the backyard
Remember this freebie?
I picked it up on the boulevard and painted it black.
I will place this near the rocker
This stool needs to be tucked into the garden with a large plant on top.
I am placing a bowling ball on top of this stand
then tucking it into the perennial border.
Strolling around while the paint dries...
I love these foamy flowers
They contrast with the foliage
these play a role in my next project...
slate pieces are to be laid down to form a bit of a garden path
near our "working area" of the garden.
and these will be planted in between the slate to form a living carpet.
I need a place to sift soil, compost, and store my wheelbarrow
so Mr. HB erected a bit of lattice fence to hide and define this part of the garden.
I'll take some photos when I complete the job.
