As promised… more inspiration for all my Dragonfly friends
This is simply a photo essay of pictures I have collected. These shots are not mine unless otherwise stated…
This is a wonderful little shed… the character that she affords with the cathedral style windows brings a sense of excellence yet a flare of the junque style I love. The small garden and other elements are meant only to lead you in… the building remains the focus here. Primitive cottage style is quite charming.
This is such a sweet little shed! The windows will give it a greenhouse effect and I am sure you could start some seeds in it. A small heater would work well in it. The white on white look affords a very neat, clean cottage look.
This is not quite my taste… a little to busy, but you can still glean some ideas from it I think… and some may say this is all them! To each their own I always say. I love all the wash tubs… I have several of my own that are planted up through my gardens.
Over the last couple years my potting shed has begun to ‘sink’ a bit in the front making it more difficult to open the door. Well last spring I couldn’t open it. We had broken up some concrete on our farm the year prior and we had several chunks of it left over from our patio. Neil used a skid loader to bring this beautiful piece over and placed it at the front door… I just love it!
This is the back of my potting shed. It is lined with antique agricultural tools. This summer I am planning on repainting the shed the aqua blue that I painted the house shutters and a few other ‘detail’ spots last summer. Not sure if I’m going to leave the trim the hunter green to match our steel roof on the house or paint them white to match our house… decisions, decisions. I am also planning on planting a pink climbing rose bush on both the corners here… dreams, dreams…
Here is the other side of my potting shed. I usually have geraniums or pansies planted in the window box. These raised beds will be our farms cut flower garden. We started it last year and actually got those two beds planted up with sunflowers. This year we will put the last five beds on the plastic… I am planning on zinnias and sunflowers.
Well, I hope this got the gears turning and inspired you to create and get out in the dirt…
