I told Matt last year that I wanted a drop leaf table. I was seeing them on pretty front porches and in antique shops and flea markets. I just loved the look of them and could just picture flowers,herbs and other pretty things on top of that table! Well~of course Matt found one for me in someone's trash a couple of months later. He never fails to amaze me by the wonderful trash he brings home! Last night he came home with a flag holder that holds little garden flags! I already have 2 but I can find room for another in the yard or landscaping!

I just love to look at this planter...

I just love this planter that Matt found alongside the road a few years ago~
I'm sure at one time it had a base.
I've planted a pink geranium (I love geraniums and of course pink is my favorite color!) with little pink and green ground cover and a trailing vine. I've also planted 4 o'clocks (seeds) that should burst through with even more color in a month or so!

You can't see it too well but their is a china plate (recently broken by my daughter~an accident) peaking out of the dirt (in 2 pieces). The china was given to my mother by her aunt for her wedding and then my mom passed it to me when I got married!
