Old Man & Old Pots

We have been very fortunate to be able to pick up some fantastic concrete pieces here and there. One great place was in Kentucky which has gone out of business. This guy made the most unusual pieces was cheap to boot.

This old man we picked up at the concrete junkyard in Kentucky. He definitely adds character to our garden.

Our Tennessee wildflower, brown eyed susans, that have decided to honor us with their presence this year.

Wonderful old flower pot we got from Mom's friend Betty when she moved. This was in 2 pieces and we wired it back together. I found an aluminum light fixture in the trash at work and put it in the pot for my yellow prickly pear cactus. The cactus has finally decided to live and has starting sprouting.

The most fabulous pot from Mom's friend Betty and nothing wrong with this one. She could not take them to her new home and we were thrilled to receive them. We planted knock out roses in it this year and hopefully they will thrive.

Purple coneflowers that have finally decided they like us. We have tried several times to grow them but until this year have never had any success. They finally found 2 spots they seem to like.



  1. Love your concrete pieces! My black-eyed-susans are getting ready to bloom and I can't wait!


  2. What wonderful pots you have!! And your flowers are looking beautiful--my black-eyed Susans and coneflowers are starting to bloom too. :) I'm in NE Tennessee.
