Tea in the Garden, Black Eyed Susanna's
This is our vintage bathtub filled with native Black Eyed Susanna's and a few native Echinacea plants. It has taken a few years for it to fill in but now it is a colorful wildflower garden and a focal point in this part of our yard. This garden room plays host to all sorts of vintage items, bathtubs, wringer washers, aluminum wash tubs and lunch pails, milk boxes and more -- Susanna calls it the "Funky garden" and Nancy refers to it as the "Yard Sale" garden. Of 'course a few tea things have made it into the yard. All have chips or cracks, no useable tea cups have been harmed in the making of this garden bed, instead the broken ones have been given a home where they are still admired on a regular basis!
