Outdoor Wednesday!

Today I am participating, for the first time, in Outdoor Wednesday. This is sponsored by A Southern Daydreamer - a great blog to check out.
This is my outdoors...

Overflowing petunia plant, flea market find cat, and a solar fairy glow ball on top.

Rosemary plant in an estate sale find Green Man planter.

Magnolia plant in recent flea market purchase bucket. Also, a stone peacock from the soon to be gone Smith & Hawken:(

Wine box planter with basil (doing very well) and green onions (not doing so well). In the background are orange day lilies - also known as deer snacks. I've seen the deer nibbling on them, but I've also seen them spitting them out. Do they like them, or not?

Green Zebra Heirloom tomato plant - with a bunny guarding it.
Closeup of the tomatoes. Will be ready soon!

And a line of marigolds protecting arugula from pests. A thrift find lady watches their progress.


  1. Hi and welcome to your first OW! J'adore all your containers for your plants...they're so unique and adds such a style to your deck! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I'm so glad you joined us for Outdoor Wednesday!

    I love your flea market bucket. That is just darling, and it's a shame about S&H.

    You have some pretty things in your yard and looks to me as if you have a green thumb, too!

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!


    Sheila :-)

  3. I don't think the deer like the daylilies or at least they don't eat mine that came up at the old house place on our property...even the donkeys don't eat them.
    I love that cart!!
    Happy OW!!

  4. Oh your pictures are so pretty. I love the cart with the wine box planter! So cute. Hope you have a great Outdoor Wednesday! Miss Blooomers/Sonia

  5. Beautiful blooms.

    Happy outdoor.

  6. Like your containers - especially the one with the Rosemary plant. I have tried to grow Rosemany and have had no luck. Love the smell and taste of it.

  7. Hello, Welcome to you first OW, I so enjoyed your flea market treasures, and that tea cart is so pretty. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Nice finds,I love the cart with the wine box.
