Fun front garden

This year I decided to incorporate some of the 'hot' seasonal colors, including the bright blue that I spray painted the milk jugs and some pots saved from last year. Went with orange for the antique chair I rescued from the depths of the our barn and found a matching plastic purse at the local GoodWill which made a perfect hanging planter for some geraniums. Picked up the raised garden bed at a local big box store at end of last season and wasn't quite sure what to do with it, so just added at the end of the garden. Recycled a few old desk drawers for the front; the snaps are quite happy here so far, as are the pansies in the middle. Most of the perennials I bought at the end of the season and overwintered them on a protected side of the garage under a pile of leaves. Being in zone 5/6...was quite please when most survived the winter!
