Show and Tell

I have mentioned my "kitchen" garden a couple time so I thought I should show you why I call it that.
This old colander filled with wave petunias is hanging on a light post as you come to the garden.

I just got this enamelware bird feeder and it fits in perfectly.
I love this egg beater and spoon wind chime. I got it a couple years ago at a craft sale.Next is an old metal stool with an enamelware coffee pot and a copper colander. I just got the colander at a sale and I can't wait until it gets the nice green patina. Before I had a large speckled coffee pot with flowers on the stool.
Lastly my old paint covered ladder with a couple birdhouses, a strainer filled with lemon thyme and my sitting frog. I use the large coffee pots to collect rain water.
There you have it, my "kitchen" garden.

You are very successful in the gardening and "whimsy" department! I must study these photos .... eventhough I have whimsy in my blog name, I really have a hard time doing it.
