Old Tools, New Flowers

On a recent antiquing jaunt with her mom, noTTafarm super friend Amy B. spotted something that she just knew that I needed. She was right, of course, and I became the proud owner of an old wheelbarrow - complete with faded Bicentennial paint job and steel wheel.
Now that the big pile of bricks has been removed from the south side of the barn, I decided this spot was the perfect place for the wheelbarrow to rest in its new life as a planter.
Scott had to reinforce one of the wooden rails as it is quite rotten - but that only makes it more charming, right?
The finished product uses a mix of yellow and purple which should look great for the wedding.
Speaking of the wedding, Pat and Kathleen were out Tuesday night so I had Kathleen help me get the Gleaner's flower boxes ready. We used rust and purple mums.
Now we just need some sunshine and some rain to get the mums to grow before the Big Day.
Thanks for your help, Kathleen! 
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
