Porch Steps Container Gardens and Accessories


"God made rainy days so gardeners could get housework done." ~ from a garden sign
I've raided thrift and antique stores and flea markets for all kinds of containers and accessories to use to decorate my front porch steps.

    Thank you so much for this post! I was looking for something interesting to hang on the "hanging Garden" my son and I are doing. We have several shepherds poles of various heights and just replanted 4 baskets to put on them. Now we need some different items to hang out there and you just gave me some ideas! I love your wind chime and am going to get started on one TODAY! I have left over pieces of chimes that have broken over the years plus some left over colored wooden balls from another project.
