Great garden - I never would have thought to use the zinc pots on the posts. Nice find!

I just adore your fenced in garden. The planters look right a home on top the posts. What a great find! Hope you have a wonderful week! Enjoy! Stephanie Lynn


Fifty cents? Wow! They're going to be beautiful. Community gardens are such a neat concept. One of the churches in our area offers one and things are really starting to grow. The blue and white hydrangeas were made for that vase...delightful!

The veggie garden is looking so yummy, I hope you have better luck this year out smarting the deer.


Love the galvanized pots you found. The community gardens are wonderful!

What a cute garden! Your galvanized pots add just the right touch! I love the community garden concept too, such a wonderful idea.


Omigosh, community gardens are so wonderful! What a terrific way to meet the neighbors, grow some veggies or create a space of beauty... LOVE your galvanized planters, too! :)

Wonderful buy on the planters! I love the community gardens. And I really love your little fence around your garden!


I love the community garden plots, and your planters look perfect on the posts - such a great bargain!

Hi, wonderful garden mosaics! Thank you so much for sharing this! I hope that you have a lovely new week!


Community gardens are so wonderful, not only do you get to use your green thumb but also meet wonderful people.


What a great little fenced in garden you have! I'm sure you're enjoying working there. I love your pretty blooms in the silver piece.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)


Your gardens are both doing so well, Susan! We are lucky to be having such good weather this spring, and hopefully lots of sunshine as summer approaches.

Great find! A community garden is so AwEsOmE! Thanks for sharing. Happy Mosaic Monday.

Back Porch Blessings,


The community garden is a great idea! Wonderful photos, have a great week!


Loved all that juicy garden news and those 50cent planters! What a bargain. xo, suzy


I love your summertime garden shots, too! Such abundance & the promise of more to come, too.
Cool silver planters!
We've had a plot in our community garden for years but with DH's ♥ attack this past Dec., we gave it up. :( We still have lots of tomatoes & peppers planted around the house, though. Its just enough for us to take care of easily.


What an amazing deal on those great pots! Your garden looks amazing. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll be back. kath

This is a truly wonderful transformation. So creative and clever!


What a bountiful garden, Susan! I love hydrangeas, especially blue ones. Thanks. Happy Blue Monday.


Susan, I love that aluminum vase with the hydrangeas. So pretty! And how neat is your garden, girl! WOW! And those galvanized planters. Super neat!

I have a little warning about vinca. I was having trouble getting some of it started a few summers ago. It kept dying. Apparently, vinca gets fungus if it gets too wet so be careful with that. It doesn't like to be over-watered, but you probably know that already. All of the vinca we planted recently bit the dust. I ahd someone watering for me while I was out of town, and I think they went overboard. ;-) I hope yours does better!

Happy Blue Monday...


Sheila :-)

Thanks Sheila...good advice about the vinca. I figure that it will get more sun and dry out more in those planters, and the portulaca that I planted with it also likes full sun and not a lot of water, so we will see. I will post more pictures. Have a great day.
♥, Susan


50 cents is a great deal for the pots on the posts. We have a community garden here on Hilton Head and on the weekend they sell the produce. Such a great way to spend the week gardening and then helping out the community with sales of the fresh veggies and fruits and flowers.


Your garden looks great! Love the galvanized pots. They are perfect post toppers. Can't wait to see them once you have plants in them.


How fun and wonderful.
Have a great week Susan.



Looks like you have really been busy! Great looking garden. Happy Blue Monday.


What a great group of mosaics.

Being in the garden gets us relaxed and close with what we love.

I am anxiously waiting on your next bountious photos... Im sure it will be great.

If you get a minute ...stop by us at Friday Finding beauty... you would fit in perfectly!


Community gardens are a wonderful thing. We gardened at a friends years ago when we had no space and it was a blessing to us and our children.


Great idea to put the zinc pots on the fence posts! Your garden looks healthy!
Happy Flag Day! ~ Sarah


How wonderful to have a community garden. I don't know of any in our community. We don't have the space in our neighborhood for something like this...so we just have our tiny area of tomatoes, peppers and herbs in the backyard.

Lori E

A great looking garden, all of them. I like the eclectic mix and odd bits in a garden. It makes them less formal and more fun.


I'd have bought those shiny planters too. I look forward to a mosaic showing them dripping with Vinca!


Hi Susan, your garden is a beautiful work in progress. Your progressive photos are sooo good. The results are worth all the hard work. It is a wonderful feeling when the results are so lovely. Your bouquet of hydrangeas is so pretty. I love them because they last for such a long time in a vase.

Happy gardening Susan. I am going out to my lily garden right now to pull weeds. UGH!

Hugs, Jeanne


Your garden is looking fabulous! I wish I could get mine in but it's been raining too much.


I saw your blue colours alright, but I absolutely adore the gazebo - I want that in my garden!!!
