On any given day

Some kind of sculpture garden grows outside my door on any given day.

Your patio probably has plants and a few flowers. Mine, on occasion, does too.

But mine are more likely to be formed of metal and wire. To be cultivated in the absence of water and daily care.

My still life garden moves and grows as yours does, but with much less care.

And a pot is for itself alone, though once in a while it may contain something delicate and wonderful. While it lives.

Something new is always popping up. Or transplanted from another quarter.

Often it is as hard to move as if it had roots!

But it can stay as long as it needs to anyway.

Ciao! for now! Thanks for stopping by!


I'm linking up with Faded Charm for another delightful
White Wednesday!
And A Southern Daydreamer for another dreamy OUTDOOR Wednesday!

But these all have significant beauty all their own. Green growing about them or not. A simple yet profound beauty.

Oh the charm and beauty of your treasures and yes, with green growing on them! They have such character.


Faded Charm said...

What awesome chippy whites you've shown today. Can you believe I just passed up a cart like in your first photo? Someone had painted the leaves a horrible color, but I could have fixed that. What was I thinking?

Take care,

Love these! The 3 tiered flower cart in the first photo is just like the one that fell on my face and head a month or so ago. Just don't get your face on the down side of this baby!! ha ha!

Debbie said...

What a great collection of white for a garden display. I especially like the old ceiling tile.

Julie said...

Love all your treasures. especially the plant stand and the two tiered rusty one...thanks for sharing them with us.

Bella said...

Hello Jacqeline... A really great post... Love the structure! The table leg with the ceiling tile behind it is a great shot!! Think of all the fun you get to have with your easy care garden, versus all the weeding and watering:-)
I enjoyed my visit:-)

Great pieces on their own and together making little vignettes.

KarenHarveyCox said...

Oh, these are all wonderful. I love all of them, but I am partial to that chippy white garden pot.

Who says you have to have living things planted in garden stuff?!? Living in a place that's hot all the time, I'm sure this idea is much easier!! Still looks wonderful to me-especially your stone planters-yummy! Julie

This is the first summer where I've left a few things unplanted, and am just enjoying the beauty of these things! I love everything on your patio, especially the square-shaped pot, which I drool over at antique stores. They're so expensive, and yes they are very heavy too!
Happy WW!

I love you white patio decor, so beautiful! Happy White Wednesday, Mary

Petie said...

What a great collection, they do offer their own kind of garden serenity with their peaceful, faded, white :)

Kay said...

I missed an afternoon of checking your blog and there are three gorgeous ones! Love this still life. I have a cart like yours in my space and everyday think I should bring it home for me! You have a way of making crusty, rusty, chippy look absolutely elegant! Great photos!

Linda said...

Such wonderful treasures you have! I love them all!

Light and Voices said...

I love all the shapes going on.
