Diana Daily’s junk garden ideas
On a sunny, beautiful day in Sunbury, Ohio I was privileged to tour the gardens of fellow Flea Marketing friend, Diana Daily. About an hours drive from my home, I left early and little did I know I was in for one heck of a garden tour experience. The “public” garden tour had been weeks before and according to Diana, cars were lined up for miles down her country back roads to see this beautiful farm and its gardens. Later Diana graciously invited me, and I got a personal tour. Around every nook and cranny and wind in the path was something spectacular to see.
Come along for a little visual tour. My camera never stopped clicking…
My sons and grandson helped me put this sculpture, together in honor of my husband who was a farmer.”
Diana told us exactly how she made her three dimensional miniature houses in a recent tutorial.
How did Diana begin gardening?
Diana says, “A friend told me I should put perennials around my bell post. I asked her what a perennial was! That started the whole thing. My husband was a farmer and loved putting old rusty things from the farm in the garden.”
Diana Daily says, “This old kettle and pump make a wonderful little water feature. Very easily done!”
