A few weeks ago I saw where someone had pinned an old wooden ladder with planters on it, an old wagon wheel leaning on the ladder, a couple rustic birdhouses and a ceramic rooster at the base.  I LOVED it, and went on a search for a wooden ladder.  No luck. . . . until a Bunco buddy saw my post on Face Book that I was looking for one and gave me this one!  She bought it at a yard sale a few years ago with the intention of doing something similar but never did anything with it.  I bought the ceramic shoe last summer while we on vacation in Wildwood, NJ and Tom bought me some hens & chickens to put in it.  
All that was missing is a birdhouse or two and the wagon wheel and possibly a metal rooster or chicken.

BUT THEN!.....  a friend of Tom's said he had a couple birdhouses I could choose from, and I found a replica wagon wheel on eBay.
The cute green wagon I bought several years ago in the winter and stored in the attic and forgot all about it until a few weeks ago.  I have some more hens and chickens that I'm going to put in that one.  The little brown Tigger wagon Tom picked up at the flea market for $1.

Strawberry plant has 2 ripe berries that Bella claimed as hers.
I washed them off and let her eat them before the birds got to them.

The rest of our front yard.
