A Garden Bed

I spotted this while out shopping in Biltmore Village and thought you would enjoy it as much as I did.


Welcome Home,
Penny

They're cute... almost look as though they should have R.I.P etched on them amongst the flowers. LOL

Donnie said...

My dil DJ has made a "flower bed' in her yard too and I have always though how creative.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Very clever! It makes one do a double take and then smile.

Jojo said...

I love your header!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Very nice! I have never seen one like that with the body of the bed in the soil...usually it has a raised "bed". Thanks for sharing!~Hugs, Patti

Stacey said...

Adorable! Imagine how fun that will be this summer when it's all filled in.

Brenda Leyland said...

First of all, they're pansies (some of my favorites); it's a blue and white combo; and it's whimsical.

And if you liked it a lot, I'm with you!

What fun...........

Every garden needs a touch of whimsy and yours is so cute. Love the Pansy "quilt".
I really need to work some more in my garden but it was cold and windy today. I did buy tomato plants though. Enjoyed your "pansy bed".

Dawna said...

Great shot!! Love the colors and the thought of spring.

Vee said...

It's great and I have an old bed that I could donate to the cause. Not as nice an old bed as that, though.

Babs said...

Sorry Penny, I thought you got it at Biltmore Village. Sorry I misunderstood. I'm so sleepy. We had a bad storm here last night and I stayed up late till it passed and I've been half asleep all day. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. LOL Have a great day tomorrow.

What a lovely idea! Near here there's a farm with a lavender bed - same idea.

Darla said...

That is great!!!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

You are right Penny~I love that garden bed!

LW said...

That is a fun idea.....

Angie said...

I love it! I wish I had an imagination to envision using things like this in my garden.

I love when people do that! I have always wanted to, but haven't...maybe I should!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

A "bed" of pansies. How precious!!!

Donna said...

Cute flower bed! I've seen those around, and they make me smile.

Hugs,
Donna

Sherri said...

That is a really cute flower bed. I've seen these before and I think it is very imaginative!

Naturegirl said...

Penny very whimsical..now could I do this in a woodland garden..hummmm.

Thank you for connecting with me.I am so cold upon returning home..should have stayed until May..wishing for warmer temps. hugs Anna

Adrienne said...

That's so cute! I've been thinking of doing the same with my daughter's old, iron bed. A piece that holds the mattress and springs broke off and the welder said it will never hold weight again. Why have a bed that won't hold weight? Only for a flower bed!

La Vie Quotidienne said...

A flower bed! How cute. I have a old wooden bed...maybe with some paint that would work too. Great idea. Thanks

Pamela said...

What a cute idea Penny! Thanx for sharing!

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...

I like that idea too Penny! Happy Spring...if it ever gets here! LOL!

Hugs,
Maryjane

see you there! said...

Cute idea. I'd like to come across a little surprise like that while walking through a garden.

I've seen these *flower beds* before and think they are so cute. I have an olden metal headboard and foot and trying to decide what to do with them..maybe I need a flower bed.:))

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

ahhhh... I love it Penny!! We have lots of old beds around here & I thought that would be fun out in front of the store....now I REALLY want to do it!
BTW, that Mile High quiche looks out of this world below....now I'm starving :)

The Painted Garden said...

Hi Penny,

Oh goodness - I love it. What a charming and easy way to make a garden bed. I also love the charming book store that serves food.
Have a wonderful day - hope the rain stops so you can paint.
Blessings,
Erin

Hi Penny, I am in Atlanta doing an antique show with my sisters. I left on Weds. This is the first time I have been on my computer to visit since Tuesday night, except for a few minutes to let my blogging friends know that I am in Atlanta and busy. The first day of the show was yesterday and it was slow. We went to bed early last night and now I am up EARLY visiting you. smile.

I do think the photo you shared is very pretty. I love everything at the Biltmore.

I will be back home on Sun. night.
Love, Jeanne

Kathleen Grace said...

This is such a cute idea. I just bought some johnny jump ups at the nursery yesterday, not enough for a "bed" but enough to fill a basket on my front porch. These pansies are lovely:>)

Victoria said...

do you just love that a garden bed super cute!
thanks for popping over to visit me again I really appreciate your comments.

Mary said...

Love it - just my look. I have bits of everything in my back garden - old bike, mirror propped against the fence, chairs, table, statues, birdfeeders, bird baths etc., guess I must start hunting for a rusty bed next, lol!!!
