  1. I have been using this same vintage-style fencing in a pot to grow black-eyed susan vine. But the way you bent the top parts back totally elevates the look of it! I never thought of that. But I’m doing that next time! I can’t wait.

    Hello Lora, Such a great idea using the old garbage cans for potted plants! I love the vintage fencing, adds a lovely touch and your flower arrangements are well put together. Love, love.

      Thanks for your sweet compliments, Elizabeth! I just can’t get enough of that vintage fencing…or of flowers;)

  4. What a clever way to repurpose a garbage can. You made something utilitarian beautiful!

      Thanks, Paula! Everything’s better with flowers, right?

  5. Lora, this is brilliant and beautiful!!! I just love the look and how you filled them with such gorgeous color! It’s just the perfect container!!! I am so inspired!

      You’re so sweet; thanks, Kristin! My eye is always drawn to whatever everyone else is done with!

  6. Lora, that’s Yankee ingenuity at it’s best! That mandevilla vine reaching for the fencing is great. I love the mix of wild color. You’ve definitely turned one man’s trash (literally) into a treasure.

      Mandevilla vine…that’s what the tag said! Thanks for reminding me, Rita! New tropical to this northern gardener;) I’m liking it; think I’ll do that one again!

  7. Your garbage can is filled with anything but! The flowers are thriving in it! Such a fun idea.

      You’re too funny, Cindy! In my world, there’s hardly anything that can’t be prettied up! So fun to be hopping with you today!

  9. I need some vintage wire fencing stat LORA! Oh, my creative heart is dancing with happiness. My son actually earned the rank of Eagle Scout by creating a similar project for ancient oak trees that were being destroyed by a family of beavers. Of course, he used modern wire fencing which is nowhere near as charming.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It can be purchased new, Laura(course then it wouldn’t have all the wonderful patina!) Think I googled it once and it’s still being manufactured…I should have an affiliate link on that one! Your son’s Eagle Scout project sounds awesome! Both my boys were Scouts too, but never made it to Eagle:(

  11. Lora, I just have to say, you do the coolest things! Your blog is like a peek inside the mind of a truly creative person. Your garbage can planter turned out great! I love the old fencing wrapped around it.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

  12. Lora, what a wonderful way to repurpose a garbage can! I have a few garbage cans that I had no idea what to do with, but now I’m inspired! So happy to be on the hop with you!
