Now I like that. It adds a rustic touch to it.

That's a nice accent and will make a great feature that other seasonal things can be added to---such as a few pumpkins and a shock of corn for fall, something whimsical for the holidays---maybe lots of faux packages with bright ribbons, and of course big pots with tall flowers for the summer months. These can be in the wagon and around it also.

Antique items are great accents, they go well with the wooden cutouts of the lady weeding her flowers(oh I'm just kidding, knock it off ) I like wagons and old farm implements. Something cool I 've seen around here is old wooden box drop seededs on steel wheelsused as flower boxes. Landscaping ain't all rocks and trees.

One of my clients has a wagon very similar to that one on the corner of there front lawn (corner property). They fill it with impatients in the spring and then put mums in the fall! Very nice look!
