Finding a balance between rusty rust and delicate, colorful flowers
Before and after… junk gardening at it’s best, I think… I sure am getting a kick out of these violas this Spring. ‘Blueberry Thrill’, they’re called. The wheelbarrow we found out on a back road,…bullet hole drainage works, I guess…
Violas are frost and snow proof, and can cheer up your patio pots all winter into Spring! These will last until June! Planting them in rusty rust sweetens the ‘pot.’
The key to success in ‘Flea Market’ or junk gardening is that you don’t have too much of any one thing. Mix in a little rust or galvanized containers as an accent on a patio or in a flower bed. Then add the sparkle of glass or ceramic for whimsy.
Violas and pansies are winter-proof!
