Shabby Chic Garden

Today was a perfect day for working on my Shabby Chic garden! I love how these sweet pansies came in a paper bag....peeking out at me!

Some friends dropped in to observe! They are a little nosy...but very friendly! They offered quite a bit of "advice". They stayed long enough for a photo shoot and then fluttered off.

I love the wind chimes that my dear father made for me last year. He fashioned them from antique silverware. I had asked him to make me some because he is so talented and then he presented them to me last summer! They sound lovely and melodic!

I hope you love the sweet little china saucer border that I put around my flower "box". When the flowers grow there will be double holly-hocks, black seed sunflowers and lavender creeping phlox. It's a work in progress but I love it so far!

I adore your plate border around your flower bed! Beautiful idea! I have an old planter box, and I was thinking of adding plates around the edge. Thank you for visiting my blog :) Have a great weekend, Connie
