  5. Bethany has an old bicycle she plans on using in a garden too, but I think maybe it needs a brighter paint job. I wonder if she knows how to use spray paint.

    1. haha...I'm sure she could figure it out. You'd have to tape off all the parts you didn't want to paint, though...but it would look great!

  8. Very charming. I have an old hand plow like the one my dad had by my back fence next to some flower vines. To me, it's charming.

    It's so nice to see a well kept home and even better when it includes a sense of whimsy. :)

  17. So pretty and since I see it has a light, that must be a regular flag pole the bike leans against. Such pretty flowers!

  18. Seriously charming is right!
    Love the flower touch in the retro theme.

  19. Love these charming old houses around our little town too. And I've always been intrigued with old bicycles in the garden. I have an old rusted one in my own flower bed as a matter of fact! Right now it's covered by a thick blanket of morning glories! Can hardly see the bicycle.
