The copper rain barrel was my favorite addition to the garden this year.
Now, if only we could get a little rain to fill it.

My antique/junk shop time is down to nuthin’…
No time for antiquing here either! My friend went to some great shops in Minneapolis on Sunday–so jealous of her finds. 18 days till the magazine people are here–the perennials are suffering. The greenhouse and Rabbit Run Cottage are what they are really here for though–so the flowers are just background. All the same the Summer of record heat and near drought is frustrating me. Thank you for your always kind words…Stacey
They’ll bring pots of things to use as props…when will it run, do you know?
Do you want some of our rain? There’s plenty of it! Apparently the jet stream which is giving us all this rain is responsible for your drought. It is stuck much lower down than normal and doesn’t look like it’s moving!! Great looking barrel.
It certainly is a weird weather year! Northern MN just had terrible flooding and the Southern half is dry as a bone!
I’m watching the farmers corn fields dry up before my very eyes. Hope you get some sun!
And thank you for visiting and following my little blog. 🙂 Stacey
It will be the early Spring Issue which I believe goes on the stand Dec/Jan.
Country Gardens Magazine!! my favorite magazine….so excited and a nervous wreck.
Wow, that wonderful 🙂
That’s a beauty.
I saw it across the room and it was love at first sight! 🙂
I was going to offer some of our rain but I see Wellywoman got in before me. The barrel is a thing of beauty!!
Copper love for sure! 🙂
That is amazing. Looks homemade. I want one but can’t find something pretty; don’t want plastic. Did see an oak barrel that was good, but this inspires me. 🙂
Awesome! What a great find. No rain up north either?
No rain here–although we are not “officially” in the drought zone–yet!
This is really great looking! Not much rain here in the south either but with a cool rain barrel, I’d be hoping for some! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
