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 "!
What's the coolest UPCYCLED garden art you've seen or created, or would like to create?
Wonderful post and photos ! I do like the bathtub garden soo cute ! Thanks for sharing ! Laters !
Very fun! Love all her creative nooks!
We have an upcycled old water pump that is beautiful in the garden. Today I felt blessed to be in the garden grounded with Mother Earth.
I love every one of these creative recycling ideas. My favorite has to be the snowman!!
Love them all - I have an old bathtub in my garage waiting to be dragged out and planted!
Deb, Love it all! Very inspiring.
Talk about eye candy. It had to be a blast just strolling thru her yard.
The mason jar with the blooms poppin' up has to be my fav!
I love your planted tub. I have a farm and love to recycle old things in different ways. susan @ throughmyporchwindow.blogspot.com
I think my favorite one here is the corner sink...Fantastic!
Fun ideas - I really liked that tea pot tree! I recently took some old metal chicken coop containers and turned them into hanging planters. Fun Stuff that makes us smile is a good thing. -Carole
I wanted to use the old cast iron claw foot tub of my brother in law's to make a planter but he may(MAY) use it someday. He currently lives on a boat so I'm thinking some day may never come. I've got to figure out a plan.
What a fun yard! I have plants in a tub just like that and I've always wanted to use old doors to make a screen but just haven't done it yet. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Transformed Tuesday.
So much fun eye candy here :)
Oh wow!! what a creative mind!! I don't think that anyone would have ever thought of decorating the garden like this!! Bravo!
