I love a good curb find.
My house is filled with them to prove it.
And my garden, too.
I scored this former fountain, that was left
for trash pick up, a year and a half ago.
I gave it new life as a planter
in our front garden.
It is the perfect anchor
for the path the letter carrier travels on
six days a week.
I planted this found treasure with
Harvest Lemon Chiffon Coral Bells
Vinca minor vines.
The vinca minor is trailing to the ground after less than a
year and a half. Its blue "periwinkle" flowers appear
repeatedly during the spring and summer.
The six inch spikes, on which the coral bells flowers
bloom, contrast with the cascading vines of the vinca.
Both plants do well in shady areas.
The tiny coral bell flowers invite a stop-and-look,
as passersby step onto the path leading to our front door.
