Met Monday for the Garden

It was a weekend for garden tours. I went to a fabulous garden and when I got home to look at the pics that I took I found that I took far more pics of "things in the garden" than I did of plants in the garden. I think that means that I like the addition of hardscape in the garden. What to do with the old tree trunk after you've stripped it of its diseased branches - how about creating a birdhouse from it (not really useful but cute)? Note the glass doorknob for the perch.
How about recycling those vintage tablecloths that have stains or holes in them rendering them "unusable as tablecloths" into seat cushions for a darling picnic set in the garden?

How about recycling the old trumpet from a garage sale into a fountain with water cascading from its bell? Isn't the stand cute too? It looked like a mosaiced piece to me. I took many pictures in this garden - many ideas I've seen before in other gardens but still - I couldn't get enough of the eye-candy in this garden.
Be sure to visit Between Naps on the Porch for the many transformations you'll see in Met Monday.

This is what is so great about these themes and memes. We get to see the creativity of so many people we wouldn't otherwise see.
