Earlier this week the kids and I paid a visit to a friend and neighbor. We share several common interests, including frugal living and gardening. As she showed me around her yard I simply had to take a few photos to share here with all of you. I was there for about 30 minutes, and left inspired to spend little to have a remarkable garden.
First, using old CDs (unusable installation disks, the free AOL ones that used to arrive in the mail, etc.) to deter birds on the cherry tree. It is supposed to be dwarf, but has gotten a tad to big to easily net. The disks cast shimmers throughout the day, and so far, so good. The old net was not discarded, it now protects her blueberry bushes!
Old hubcaps became stepping stones in the garden.
And a headboard found on the curb was given a second life for her bean plants that need something to climb.
What frugal inspiration is in your garden? Leave a comment and inspire us all. Thanks to Cindy and Molly for the tour....we'll return later in the summer for a morning visit (my kids started to wilt, cutting the visit a bit short).
