Quaint beauty in a Flea Market cottage garden
Part of the beauty of Tammy Prouty’s vintage garden is like stumbling on a wee bit of rural England or maybe journeying back a century or two into simpler times. Another factor is how she captures the look with her camera. Look at these ancient looking vignettes containing cottage garden plants like yarrow, coneflower, snapdragons, foxglove, lobelia and stock. Little birdhouses appear here and there.
Tammy’s ancient rusty wagon is filled with Mecardonia ‘Gold Dust’, Violet sweet alyssum, and Euphorbia ‘Diamond Frost.’ In this photo below, the clay pots just glow and the handles of the garden forks echo the handle of the wagon.
Against this weathered grey fence below, coneflowers and meadow sage hide a galvanized chicken feeder hung on a simple hook. Details in the background below are intriguing! Thanks, Tammy!
So simple and yet so charming, Tammy has a knack for placing just the right details in the perfect place. here a stone cat and a watering can sit at the base of a rustic wood bench, a box for a shelf and a backdrop of unpainted lattice. The grapevine wreath and the ‘America’ sign are the finishing touches.
