Wednesday's thrift shop

When I'm tired I need to relax doing what I like most...I had an headache after work but it was a very sunny day so I decided to go out and I went to the thrift shop...


















...I found these two zinc tubs for my garden at a very good price...zinc is quite expensive in Italy...I could't resist...

















...I planted some pansies in the smallest one...

















...I need some plants for the bigger tub, but it's still too hot for Autumn flowers...I've to wait that the new season decides to arrive not only on the calendar!

Hello Vale
Thank you for your lovely comments. Pansies are one of the most beautiful winter flowers, I love them. My husband thinks they look like pirates with hats! I see something quite different ;-))

Love your pansies, I have had them as well in a large zink barrel but now the cold weather has made them look sad... I have to throw them away. But they have been so beautiful all summer :)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Ciao cara che meraviglia questi oggetti, sai anch'io amo lo zinco! A proposito di tintura i colori li ho comprati a Parigi la marca è ideal, la scelta è vasta devi solo scegliere quelli che ti ispirano di più. Baci e buon fine settimana

Cara Vale,

I love to see that the calendar is "out of order". Do't mind a few moments more - of summer. I am also planting pensies this weekend - close to black colour. They would go well w your zink pots. Lovely post, cara! Buon fine settimana e bacione, Ingrid in Umbria
