Galvanized Flower Buckets


I love using galvanized buckets for flowers.
They look so farmish! {Is that a word? Yes, I think so.}


This is my favorite pair this year.
Angelonia, periwinkles, and moneywort
next to a  worn out chicken waterer filled with succulents.


A few on the front porch cozy up our morning coffee spot.  Even plain ol' sweet potato vine looks great cascading out of a galvanized bucket.


This has proven to be a great use for a bucket too.

In God's love and mercy He redeemed them;
He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
Isaiah 63:9

  2. Looks so beautiful. Galvanized... really eye catching. I love angelonia, that's aromatic and colorful. I have many periwinkles on my front yard, they never stop flowering. Have a nice weekend.

  4. Kim, your galvanized bucket with a garden hose in it is an absolutely brilliant idea!!! I'm going to use that and soon. I love how plants look in buckets and the old beat up chicken waterer looks so sweet. Love them! ~ Dori ~
