Here's what I found at an antique sale yesterday....it's a grinder bench...can you see the square pegs where the legs were placed? Years ago they wet the legs and when they dried they were kept in place! I just love it! Will probably go in my booth with some wood crates and wood plank on top for more display room. Do you think that I should paint and/or stain it?
Also, here is my front flower garden...I'm trying to develop an English garden like the ones in Martha's Vineyard....Mine is full of knockout roses (very easy to grow and are everbearing til even after a frost!), orange lilies, butterfly bush, blanket flower, climbing roses (near the garage), delphenium (tall spikey blue/purple ones planted from seed), yellow day lilies, butterfly flower (they have reseeded everywhere from just one flower; almost annoyingly too much).
I also have a wisteria bush (but no flowers yet), Sunflowers, climbing clematis, wigela, and perennial snapdragons (so very fragrant and reseed themselves even though they are supposed to be annual). They also make great drieds for crafting. I also planted some new English daisies but they are very small and in the front. There are also some little yellow and orange flowers but I don't remember the names......Looks like I have to clip those climbing roses in the background! What else goes well in an English Garden?
