Under cloudy skies

A bit cloudy and cool at the Secret Garden sale today - perfect weather to putter around the displays and find buried treasure. Crowds were a little smaller than expected, so there are some great finds waiting for their moment.

If you need an old, beat up bike with a basket of blooms, there are quite a few. Or a rusty old wheelbarrow filled with posies. Pots, whiskey barrels, old buckets . . . containers galore for that rustic garden theme. Vintage patio furniture. Handmade dolls. Container starter plants. Free cookies and coffee. I've met some really fun and fabulous gals. And we are all doing the chicken bone voodoo tonight, to ward off the stupid weather forecast of rain tomorrow. Crossing my fingers . . . .
