Happy Monday, friends! Today, you are in for a real treat! Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home is hosting a vintage garden tour. Several talented bloggers will be sharing their gardens and porches decorated with lots of vintage charm. If you are visiting from Art and Sand, I am so happy that you stopped by! Before, I share some of my garden with you, join me on the back porch for some pink lemonade and lemon cupcakes.
To add a vintage touch to my back porch, I placed Dragon Wing Begonias in antique olive buckets.
I love pops of color and found these new outdoor pillows at Homegoods.
A vintage watering can propped on an antique book adds another touch of old world charm.
Perched upon a blue and white garden stool is a piece of Depression Glass filled with limes.
Now let’s take a look at some of my flower beds. Our house is situated in an area with lots of mature trees. Therefore, the majority of our plants and flowers have to be shade tolerant. That can really limit what we are allowed to grow. We have lots of azaleas that bloom in the spring. We also have some that are ever blooming. However, we had a really late freeze this year, and most of our azaleas lost their blooms.
We planted lots of Caladiums and Impatiens. They love the shade! You will find Impatien borders in both my front and back yard areas.
The weathered statue helps to reinforce a vintage look to the garden.
Coleus is another shade loving plant that does well in my flowerbeds.
I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit! Up next on the tour is Jann at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs Olson. Be sure to visit the other bloggers on the tour. A schedule is posted below. Also, there is an Alfresco Tablescape Blog Hop going on this week. A schedule for this event is also posted below. I will be featuring my tablescape on Thursday. Enjoy your day, sweet friends!!!
