June Garden Party

Welcome to our June Garden Party!

Elizabeth and Co.

To celebrate summer, we're hosting a monthly garden party from May through September. And I always think it really starts feel like summer once I flip that calendar over to June! I'll be back later in the week with an update on my gardens.

Now here's some beautiful garden inspiration from our May party .....

Laurel from The North End Loft has a wonderful tour of her rustic urban garden, along with some thoughts about how her garden has transitioned over the years. And it's so true, gardens grow and evolve over time just like the people who love and care for them!





Brooke from Creative Country Mom's Vintage Home & Garden also shared her spring garden tour!





Kokedama is a traditional Japanese art form that uses moss to create a container for a plant. Stacy from Sweethearts & Sweet Tarts received several of these moss planters as a birthday gift from her mom. So cool hanging from her tree!





Head over to Adventures in Junking and be inspired to get creative when choosing containers for planting!



Check out this trumpet planter!



You'll find more fun ways to use junk in the garden over at Reduce, Reuse, Renewed!



I'm Not A Trophy Wife shared this cute garden/puppy gate!



Tara from Lehman Lane has a mailbox in her garden for storing garden tools - very clever!



My husband will tell you that I'm a bit obsessed with crisp, clean garden edges. You can get great tips for edging over at Thelma's Days.



Cecilia from My Thrift Store Addiction refreshed a rusty bench for a pretty pop of color and a touch of whimsy in her garden!



Thanks so much to everyone who shared their garden inspiration!
 
Now on to this month's party.....
*Link up any outdoor or garden related project you'd like to share - what's growing in your yard or garden, patio gardens, landscaping ideas, outdoor craft projects, garden furniture, bringing the outdoors in, garden fresh recipes and of course we love pretty porches and patios too!

*A link back would be appreciated, especially if you'd like to be considered for a feature.

*We'll launch a new party on the first of the month. Feel free to link up as often as you like throughout the month!

Can't wait to see what's happening in your outdoor world!
