Jesse's Gardens

When I posted the 1894 Barn here, I told you that the owner, Jesse, has some great gardens and I would go back and get photos.  Well I did, and here they are, all SOOC.  He has a lot of trees and so has a lot of shade plants.   He also has a lot of garden junk art in the gardens and it is done very tastefully. 
























These are old lightning rods.




Don't you just love this potting bench with the big old sink.

For Friday Fences I will show you some fences from his gardens.
And I will show you the back side of the barn and the old granary at next weeks Barn Charm.
