Wednesday's Garden ~ A Weekly Garden Tour ~ Week #1

Although, I worked behind the scenes in a flower shop for almost 20 years, I am probably the worst gardener on the planet.  I think this may be a trait that I inherited from from grandmother.  So, every year, I drool over and covet other peoples' gardens.  My cousin, Wednesday, has a beautiful garden that she shares with her family and friends via social media.  Each morning she strolls her garden and snaps some pictures to post on Facebook.  Last summer, I found myself eagerly awaiting her newest photos each day.  I loved watching her garden blossom and flourish.

Today, and every Wednesday through the Spring and Summer, I invite you to visit Wednesday's Garden with me.  Additionally, I will post a linky for anyone that would like to share their garden theme posts for the rest of us to enjoy.

Aren't these rain boot planters so cute?!  Almost everyone that knows me, knows that I love shoes!  That most definitely includes rain boots!  Although I don't own a pair personally, Grace has had several pair over the course of the past 5 years!  I'm totally kicking myself for selling them in my yard sale group!

Wednesday created these adorable planters using her kids' outgrown rain boots.  She added rocks and leaves in the bottom before adding her soil and plants.  While the plants are still small this early in the season, soon the boots above will be bursting with brightly colored favorite!

Below, are some alternate views of the mates to the boots on the fence:

If you're like me and you don't have rain boots, check out your local goodwill or thrift shops!  Wednesday didn't have enough boots for her project and picked up an extra pair for two bucks!  (That's just a dollar per planter!)

Now it's your turn!  Please link up your garden post!  If your garden isn't started yet, share something from last year's garden!  Just be sure to include a link back to this post so that others can join in on the garden tour!
