If I had a backyard bigger than a patch of grass with a swingset, I’d put these in it.

Three big pieces from Sage Farm’s Hint of Spring show that would be perfect in a roomy garden. (If only I had one!) All three were repurposed from vintage bits of this & that by somebody with imagination and a lot of talent.

A potting bench with an antique single tap and an unusual square porcelain enamel cast iron sink basin. Hook it up to your outdoor plumbing and you have a marvelous place to pot up and to wash hands when you’re done! Two drawers for tools and seed packets plus a vintage ironstone soap dish add functionality. And those white turned columns for the upper shelf add a little glam, don’t they?

A portable mini greenhouse made from old window sashes and four conical furniture legs. That might be chunks of old picket fence on the floor. Imagine this stuffed with pansies. Sigh!

A garden shed with a barn-red door and an old thermometer outside. Inside, plenty of shelves for pots and tools. Why have an ugly plastic shed in your yard when you could have this?!

Oh, and if you look at the topmost left of this photo, you can just make out my most favorite thing ever at Sage Farm: a barn swallow’s nest left on a ledge right inside the door!

    You’d have room for that little potting shed! But you have a garage, so there’s not much point.
