Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Contents -

the de­light is in the de­tail when it comes to gar­dens. So with the sum­mer en­ter­tain­ing sea­son here, give vent to your creative flair and cre­ate a few charm­ing scenes us­ing re­cy­cled items in clever, colour­ful ways. You’ll bring a big smile to the face of your Christ­mas vis­i­tors and, even bet­ter, you’ll get to en­joy the cre­ations all year round – just swap over the flow­ers when needed!

Move over hang­ing bas­kets! Plant cap­sicums in old ket­tles and hang them in a sunny spot.

Use a wall of ivy like an oasis frame, in­sert­ing flower stems to form a quirky wreath.

Spray-paint an old bike in shock­ing pink, then add a box of bril­liant blooms.

Whimsy works on a front ve­ran­dah, as this tableau of bun­nies and bot­tles shows!
