A New Flower Kettle


Today I'd love to share with you a new addition to my flower garden.  

I found this old cast iron tea kettle sitting at the metal pile in our local dump, just waiting for me to pick it up and bring it home. ~smiles~

I had already purchased some flowers that week that had not yet found a home, and they are perfect for this kettle.  They are so delicate an a lovely colour to!

All potted up and sitting with some other flowerpots by my front step. Looking at the picture, I can see I need to trim back some grass. Things are taking a bit longer here to flower as the weather has been cool, but I'm looking forward to seeing it all in full bloom.

Thanks for dropping over to see me! Praying you have a beautiful day!

What a great find!!
I have an old rustic cast iron tea kettle too. I normally plant fake flowers in mine. Then I can exchange colors through out the seasons. Mine is currently on an old stump outside my kitchen window.

I hope your day is a good one!

Be blessed!

I had one just like this that used to sit on our gas wood stove but it rusted out pretty good. Mine went to the metal recycling place and maybe someone rescued it as you did this one.
Happy Gardening Jennifer!

I love rescuing and repurosing old worn out metal containers too! I would be beyond thrilled for a find such as yours! It looks absolutely delightful graciously adorning your porch steps :) Hugs to you today :)
