Curious Corners Outside My Home

Click on the photos for more detail.This is the same area outside my home with 2 different garden vignettes.
I placed all the flagstones like a GIANT puzzle patio area, and I built the windowboxes.
I love old rusty red wagons. This one is probably my oldest. It was purchased for about $5 at the auction house I used to go to pretty frequently. All my other rusty red wagons were thrifted from along the curb in my travels.
I have 2 wagons- stacked double decker -( a smaller one on top ) planted with Impatiens by my front door. I guess I can add red wagons to my list of
"I collect..." And of course- they're RED!!
I painted the sign and it says
"Thyme began in the garden"...
*Thyme (herb) play on words for time.

Great "corner".
I have the little red wagon my children played with (and were pulled in) :-} & I love the idea of planting up the doll's crib. Very cute!

Amy, I am coveting your crocks...shame on me! I collect them. I use them for cat food, cat water dishes, plant holders, storage. Yours our a great size and so pretty with the geraniums!

My brother and I used to push each other in the very same wagon you have in your photos...and we still have it after all these years! I love the idea of putting pots of flowers in it!

You got the wagon for only $5. My goodness that was a wonderful find. Well done for spotting it and snapping it up, it looks great!
