Potting Benches, Succulents & Garden Upcycling

Garden upcycling projects and more planting ideas that will leave you feeling inspired. Tackle your outdoor space!

First off, happy Victoria Day to my Canadian friends! It hasn’t been the sunny weekend I was hoping for, but it’s always nice to spend time with family and friends. Today, I’m crossing my fingers I can finish up my outdoor decorating post for tomorrow if the weather permits!

A big thank you to everyone who shared their Plants & Flowers Projects at the Outdoor Extravaganza last week! I’m always amazed by the level of talent. So much inspiration!

Today, I thought I’d share some of my favourite gardening projects from the party along with a few that seemed to be top picks amongst readers according to the number of visits.
