Mid-Summer Delight

I don't know about you but right about the 1/2 way point of summer, my container plants start to droop.

This maybe due to my non-committal watering habits or our soupy Ohio Valley weather, but I'm always wishing for more mid-July.
Here's a few creative containers I found recently:
What a great way to use an old piano!  Isn't this fabulous :)
I found this car filled with flowers outside a local transmission repair shop. 
But I think the bicycle is my favorite.  I'm hoping to do this on our back porch one day!

  1. Thanks so much for stopping by!! I am not far from you , over in Pa., and between the huge amounts of rain and then temps. in the 90's, my flowers are starting to lose it!! My impatiens are water logged and will be dying off soon.


  2. Oh what fun. I especially love the piano waterfall. Now that is using your imagination. Thanks so much for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  3. Great ideas for flower containers!


  4. I was just thinking my flowers looked sad this past weekend as I was working out in the yard. But, yesterday and today had lovely summer showers for us. Love the car filled with flowers. Thank you for sharing and thank you for the visit and sweet comment at The Dedicated House! It means the world! I would love it if you would share this post at my Make it Pretty Monday party which is currently live. Here is the link if you want to check it out. Hope to see you at the bash!

  6. How much fun! The piano wins! That's awesome!

  7. I would never think to use a piano for a garden accessory, but it looks great. The bike is my favorite too!

  8. Oh My Goodness! Who would ever think to use a piano for flowers. That is just such fun! All of these are great. I always love flower decorated bikes. I enjoyed your post. laurie
