Garden art

Well, I got out and worked and toiled to fix a backyard area this week.  My In-laws are in from North Carolina to watch the boys play baseball so I wanted the backyard patio to be pleasant.
I started with an item from Goodwill that I thought the boys would want to lug baseball out the back gate with.  But, it must be missing something so I get to keep it for my garden art.  It is really suppose to be a tennis ball holder.
Ok, so here it is with the lid open and ready for my Easter plant to be placed in it..
Very nice!!
Now, on to my door..Here it is all broken up...
I got a Mandevilla vine to have it trail up on the door.  I've had this door and maybe would have never been inspired to do more for it without blogland.
1 more attempt to put the pieces back with hammer, nails and elbow grease.  I dug a hole right in the middle.  Hubby did a nice brace and stake for the door when we 1st put it out here.  Yes...he thought I was crazy draggin' a door home that I paid $20 for and wanted for garden art alone. ;-}
This is the ready mode...
Well, that's all...I gotta pace myself in the humidity!!

I'm taggin' in:
