Antiques and Thrift-Store Treasures
Renee Toth loves plants, antiques, and garage-sale finds. So it was only natural that when she decided to install a pond in her barren backyard in Brownsville, Wisconsin, she found ways to incorporate some of her favorite treasures. Renee covered the edge of her pond with large stones given to her by a family member and flagstones found at the local landfill. Vintage watering cans, lightning rods, and an antique iron gate are displayed throughout her pond garden, which is surrounded by roses, ferns, peonies, and dahlias.
