Antique Planter with Tulips

Could anything be pretier? Just look at the size of those trimmed evergreens on either side of the magnificent planter. The size of this copper vessel is amazing and the patina is wonderful. Love this photo!!!via

I love those elements, too.
And, is that a ceramic face above the door?

Beautiful garden. I would love to see the rest of it. I always wanted an old house, one with patina, that had a stone or brick exterior, and a garden with tall, neatly trimmed, or topiary style hedges.

Penelope Bianchi and Linda -- You two saw the same thing. A face above the door. I thought it was a bird house. Now I see a face. Thank you both.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy -- I haven't seen any tulips yet and very few daffodils. They are late bloomers this year.

Love this big pot! As I drove down Springdale Road today, where Miss Daisy lived, I noted many beautiful yards and gardens in full bloom. Brought to mind that I’m behind in getting my patio looking more like spring and less like winter. But the houses on Springdale likely have a real gardener to get things shipshape. Mrs. Bluebird is sitting on her eggs on the patio, and I don’t want to disturb her with my scratching in the dirt and banging pots around. That’s the best excuse I have for running late. :-)

We have to rebuild our entire garden.. except the trees......they are so magnificent...and they are still there....You will help me! I go back through all your posts!

Onward!!!

Thank you so much!

Our goal is an "old garden" starting next week!

Spring is a great time for this! Thank God all the dormant vines were spared thanks to Dan "the gardener sent from heaven" He explained to the people in the bobcats who had to scoop up 50 tons of mud....."those vines are dormant.....those gates are not debris! etc, etc.

Onward!

Penelope, like the trees around your beautiful home you are resilient too. I know you will replant a beautiful garden.

I love this idea for planting tulips, recently saw another garden with the same type of planting arrangement. I'm going to start looking for the container. The spring blooms are favorites with their promise of everything waking up and coming alive again. Spring is in full force out here in the west...of course that means that along with blooms and buds we get occasional snows...it's like watching a tennis match with ones heading swinging right and left with warm days and cold days.
