We like Gardening and we like Flea Market shopping. Here, it becomes art!
Flea Market Gardening is a sharing site, the work of many talented gardeners from the United States and around the world, who post photos and stories of their gardens and tell of their love for re-using old Flea Market and junk shop finds in a creative way. Many, many people have found a ‘home’ here where they are understood!
About Flea Market Gardening
Inspiring each other, this ever-growing Flea Market Gardening community of ‘antiquers’, collectors, and junkers who love gardening, shares ideas, connecting with the people who share their passion for junk. Some say “It’s like a magazine that talks to you!” You may just find some helpful tips, one-of-a-kind Flea Market finds, contests, and interesting project ideas while you’re here. You’re home!
Since Spring of 2012, two more active members of Flea Market Gardening have joined me, Sue Langley, as editors of the FMG Facebook page, Jeanne Sammons and Marie Neimann. Another creative artist/gardener, Stephie McCarthy has joined us as resident artist working on new graphic designs for the website and Facebook page.
Here on the FMG website, we profile some of the talented gardeners we know, up close and personal on a page called Garden Tours! We also feature projects that require more in depth instructions. Fun! These garden projects, ideas and beautiful photographs here are all part of a green, re-purposing outdoor lifestyle!
Real people, real gardens, real projects!
About Sue Langley
I’m Sue, a passionate gardener and photographer, who got the gardening ‘bug’ from working and playing in my mother’s garden in Southern California where I received my education in art, design and photography at Cypress College.
In 2005, after a 20 year career in wedding photography, I and my husband, Tractor Man, moved to a mountain community in Eastern Madera County near Yosemite. I tend two of our seven acres near the Sierra National Forest where I’m delighted to be joined in the garden by my Corgi, Maggie.
Impressed by the natural beauty and many community events in her small town, I enthusiastically researched gardening in snow and deer country and am surprised and delighted every season by my ‘new’ garden.
I began writing a personal garden website, Sierra Foothill Gardening in 2009 and wrote for Madera County Gardening Examiner until Jan 2013. With ink stains on my green thumb, I began to manage the Flea Market Gardening Facebook page in March 2011. This website was begun 9 months later and born August of 2012.
You’ve seen us on Facebook, now here are some of your favorite photos, projects and people up close and personal in an expanded version on our roomy website.
