A Valentine bird house made from the Botanical Interests Seed Catalog

A Valentine bird house made from the Botanical Interests Seed Catalog illustrations is fitting for a gift to someone special for the day of love. I save my catalogs and cut out shapes from the flowers. The scrollwork is wallpaper rub ons. I rub on the wallpaper but  decoupage the illustrations to the surface of watering cans, birdhouses, and other useful items. I add another layer of decoupage or varnish. I wouldn’t set it out in the weather but this one has been sitting protected on my front porch for several years now. it has held up well. You can see the entire article HERE. Botanical Interests Seeds has the prettiest catalogs out there.  You can find rub ons HERE at Amazon. Look at all the garden designs featured. I’d like to make one from the black and white selections. Paint the can first if you like then add the rub ons.  So make someone a watering can or birdhouse today!

Here is a watering can I made from stencils leftover from a home project I did years ago. This is cute to give to a garden friend or just to cheer someone up. You could just as easily add a card that said get well soon. For Valentine’s Day you could add hearts and love notes. The can was already yellow. I think adding the seed packet is cute. Look at these rose and vine rub ons!

Monarch Butterflies love this milkweed

Monarch butterflies love this milkweed so you should plant it. So unusual and kids will love it just be careful because it is poisonous. This is the Ascelpias Furr Balls or Monkey Balls plant which is a milkweed and Monarch butterflies can’t get enough. I got the seeds from The Kew through Thompson and Morgan. It reseeds heavily but was such a fun plant in the garden and in arrangements. Gymphocarpus Physocarpus is the botanical name. Can also be called Swan Plant or Balloon Plant

See also, Monarch Caterpillars in Fur Balls, Feel the Rhythm of the Monarch wings, Ascelpias Monkey Balls —other articles I’ve written on this plant.

The American Flag in the garden

This mosaic of my photos gathers all the American flags in the garden I have ever photographed plus a few I threw in just because they matched. God Bless America. I am insanely patriotic and love America along with its diverse Americans. I am crazy about The 4th of July and my blood runs red, white, and blue every day. There is even a photo of me when I first started this website many moons ago. <a
