My Beautiful Blooming August Garden... That Didn't Die.

I truly thought everything I'd plant would die if I went camping. But I was oh so wrong thanks to some friendly neighbours that came to water in our absence.
Welcome to my garden and flower filled porch / patio... that I'm happy to say, is far from over!
Let's start the tour with my outdoor flower filled office! I love bringing my laptop here each sunny morning with my coffee.
I like to sit on the pallet sofa, that faces out towards the view.
The rail is filled with junk styled flower pots in full bloom! Miracle Grow and plenty of water are to thank.
We also have a pallet chair on the patio. Please come for coffee!
The bottle styled hummingbird feeders are right at home among all the flowers.
The garden shed is all decked out in full blooms and full blown greenery.
I allowed the grapevines to just do their thing, growing over top of the door. It's super pretty!
Bright, red geraniums are doing awesome in this old crate flowerbox.
My fav garden cheat was to place the bench into the ivy so I didn't have to move it to mow the lawn. Looks really cool!
This lush front door sitting area is the perfect summer escape!
Another fab cheat... place a hanging basket on top of a barrel full of soil. Instant amazing and no planting required.
Two smaller pallets were simply tucked into place for another little secret walkway.
My favourite part is where the old kettle is tipped, appearing to have spilled all that fragrant alyssum.
This little pallet wood walkway looks right smart with a little bit of creeping charlie to keep it company.

    I love all of your upcycled pieces. That shed of yours give me ideas to enhance our chicken coop. The girls will love it!

    Love it! Geraniums are some of my favorite flowers -- available in so many different colors and very easy to grow!
