Our Summer Potting Sink

Can I just tell you how much I love our vintage potting sink? I dress her up for the seasons and special holidays and, as I come down the garden path and she comes into view, I smile every time. You see, my sink is a girl !
Three cute gingham and applique half-aprons found at yard sales create the sink skirting which conceals a five-gallon bucket and recirculating pump housed there. Since we are having quite a heat wave, I moved heat-tolerant succulents from other spots in the garden to be this month’s stars. She's fresh as a daisy in her gingham and ready for the summer days ahead.
