"Olden Things" in the Garden

Susan from A Southern Daydreamer is the hostess of Outdoor Wednesday...thanks Susan. Go to her blog to see what everyone else is sharing today. Today I am sharing the "olden things" that I have in my garden. Old wagon wheels...a piece of a machine of some sort...tree stumps...and my pump.
I put two of the Mums that I picked up in my "junk pile"...I love the old broken wheels.
My home made fountain that I put together out of an old water pump. I change it each year, mostly because I can never remember how I had it the year before. (even if I have a picture...it never turns out the same way twice) It gets taken apart before the freeze in the winter.
It has been a crazy week here...(like none I have had in a while.) {8-) I didn't get a chance to take any photos today until it was almost too dark, so my photos are not the best quality.
Thanks for the visit...see you tomorrow! there is a surprise coming!
Better shots of these photos will hopefully be taken for FF!

What a beautiful garden you have! You must be very talented and creative, too, to craft such an amazing fountain from a water pump. Too clever!!

Have a lovely week,

I like the pump water feature. My mother-in-law wants a pump like that. I've had my eye out for one I could afford, but I haven't found one yet. I never though of hooking it up as a water feature. Happy OW.

Nice outdoor post.

Sue said...

I like your "junk" pile....very nice. And your fountain is super! I've been trying to find a fountain I like for a new section of garden I'm working on. I can't find anything "rustic" and "country" enough. Yours is perfect..........I might see if Don can rig up something like yours.

Darla said...

Love how you arrange your items. What is the plant on the right hanging over the wheel? I had a dream about mixing concrete after reading your post yesterday!!!

Hootin' Anni said...

That was a terrific share. I really like the water pump!! Reminds me of my grandmother's home.

My O W is posted now...it's a continuation [and last entry for the week] of our tour of the Botanical Gardens.

Hey Tootsie! I love your "junk pile" and of course I fell in love with your pump a long time ago, use to plan to take it when we went on a heist to your greenhouse. lol

Beautiful gardens. Unfortunately I'm not blessed with much of a green thumb so I just enjoy viewing what others have done with their gardens! :-)

Becca's Dirt said...

I absolutely love the wagon wheels. How nice they look in your garden. Tootsie I think you can do just about anything can't you. I would love to build me a water feature in my gardens. You inspire me.

You have crafted a beautiful garden. The pump is amazing and is an indication of how clever you are. It really looks wonderful in that spot.
I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Your photos look great and what beautiful groupings they are. You are so smart. I have no creative ability when it comes to designing.

Tootsie love those pictures. Those are the things I like to see in a garden. I used to put together a fountain, until I got my fish pond. Hard enough to keep it tended. I need to do outdoor Wednesday. Now that my daughter is better I hope to get back on a schedule.Thanks for all your comments dear one.
