Vintage Inspiration Friday #31 Spring Garden Cart

The itch to get my hands in the dirt got the better of me yesterday afternoon.
After all, it was in the upper 30's when I decided to make a run to Lowes,
and buy some perennials for this little project.

Of course, there was only one checkout,
and there were other fools out there just like me!
(insert chattering of teeth and blue fingers)

So...I've had this little vintage garden cart for the last 5 years
stuck under the deck, only doing a few odd jobs around the yard.

But after seeing one today
 that has been planted with creeping phlox for the last few years,
I decided to put one together for myself.

Sorry no photo from the one from Spring Creek,
but it was really sweet with teensy blooms spilling over the edges
in all the lovely pinks and lavenders.

I added some daffodils and pink hyacinths in with the mix.
Don't know how that will work for the long run,
but I was desperate for some planting fun...sheesh...desperate.

It's a little decrepit,
 and my husband has threatened to set it by the curb on trash day.

Just look at those fabulous wheels...
I'm thinkin' it's best to be in one spot.

Here's the sort of look I'm going for, although this isn't creeping phlox.

Lot's of work to do outside,
so I'm hoping the weather cooperates!

What kind of gardening fun have you all been up to?

Here's some random vintage inspiration from last week:
