I have this love affair going on with my potting bench…
Not only do I love my potting bench, I love that it’s sitting on the ground at the bottom of our deck. What a vantage point!
It’s perfect for displaying flowers such as these lilies which I planted last autumn. I took them from a pot on the deck and stuck them in the flower bed for the winter… oh my… how happy am I that I did that…
I play here, I relax here, I arrange bouquets here.
I picked these wildflowers from the ditches surrounding our home. There’s goldenrod, yarrow, chamomile, clover, and I’m not sure what that purple flower is, but this whole bouquet is going in the fire pit when it’s done… no errant seeds will find their way into my garden.
I’ve had this beautiful book since 1999, and I pore over it every summer… well, actually I pore over it all the time.
So, this is how I play.
I have a little series on Instagram at keepingupblog. I’m using the hashtag #fromthepottingbench, if you want to see it.
Sorry that I haven’t been around to your blogs lately… summer and grandchildren… need I say more? I hope to be back soon.
