How to grow JUNK in your garden

Garden 10.28.14
I have a litte garden trick I play. When the plants are still fairly young, I'll place selected junk pieces among the young blooms to fill up the garden beds. Not only will your garden look more lush, you'll have some cool stuff to look at too!

Here's my own collection of garden junk, including a HomeTalk clipboard!

    I was 'thinking' ... the metal headboards with sweet peas must smell wonderful when you open the windows.... Fragrant flowers climbing in front of open window and window is hidden by the flowers...... hmmmmm thanks for the idea.

    @ Rosalie M. That's ok, I have a neighbor two houses down, who has not one but two old white toilets in their front yard with nothing in them! And yes, it's meant as decor!!!

    I love your junk and how you tucked it in here in there. I learned during our participation in the local garden tour this spring that many other folks like repurposed junk also. I saw many of them snapping photos. Some people just need a little
