Rustic Summer Garden Tour

 I'm a fan of golden hour, sun setting through the trees, and enjoying the fiddling around in the yard in the evenings. Come on over and take a walk around the yard with me! 

The gazebo has several rusty buckets hanging from springs.

 You may remember that these two hanging baskets are "bottomless buckets". Plastic pots are liners inside the galvanized buckets and serve as a focal point when walking up to the gazebo. The herbs are going crazy in these two baskets!

My garden is full of Roots and Wings! Many of the roots in my yard have been shared by friends and family and tells a story and of course I love watching my feathers friends.

I haven't planted anything in these buckets...yet! I'm telling myself these buckets are water troughs for the little critters in the yard.

The yuccas are blooming along the front fence and they have really multiplied in the past few years, nearly taking over the brick patio, so I must divide them up soon and find more place to plant them.

I love taking close ups (macros) of the flowers, particularly the small little blooms.
