Happy Earth Day friends! What better way to celebrate this important day of awareness than looking for new ways to GO GREEN IN THE GARDEN? My pickin' friend Kelly, from " out west " is doing her part to GREEN up her Garden with no poisons, or nasty pesticides in sight! Her re-claimed bathtub is bubbling over with giant Geraniums and sweet alyssum.
Kelly hosted my cousin's baby shower at her house and I couldn't help but notice her farmgirl green touches in every corner of her yard ( and inside too ). Here she is perched next to her vintage Tea Pot Tree in her cactus garden. Turns out she's been collecting them for years. Kelly ( and her talented hubby Billy ) have caught the Up -cycling fever and like many of us they have rooms stuffed to the gills with " projects in waiting ". They're on the look out for the perfect location for their new shop in Reno or Sparks Nevada.

Everyone needs a corner sink in the garden, don' t cha think?
Old rusty bed frames and gates make the perfect trellis for climbing plants.
How about a vintage sewing machine propped in the garden as a reminder to sew seeds of kindness and creativity where ever you go?
This not so snowy snowman made from misc parts is a reminder that temperatures can still drop bringing a chilling end to a sunny warm day.
That's where this old wood stove comes in to play... Toss in a log, sit back and relax and let your creativity sprout in your GREEN garden yard too!
Aren't these some great GREEN ideas?
Which one is your favorite? I know! It's hard to " pick "!
