    Wow I love that dresser planted. You have to be willing to watch it decay, but WOW!

    I want to go into my barn and see what I have that I can transform into a wonderful whimsical garden feature. Thank you for such inspiration to transform a garden space. I like BIG pots in the forest. and rusty metals. I have a few old iron and brass headboards and want to make a bed of flowers somewhere with them. Any one have some photos to share of their crazy and creative garden scenes.
