~Meadow Sage~ This deer-resistant perennial is easy to care for and rewards the beginning gardener with long-blooming deep purple flowers. It’s a favorite of hummingbirds and bees, and will become a favorite of yours, as it comes back year after year.
Upcycle a vintage metal window or door guard to serve as an ornate backdrop for climbers or potted plants. Simply mount the piece on a fence or wall and leave as is, or attach a pair of cast-iron flower-pot rings as an added flourish. | Photo: YOUR Old House | thisoldhouse.com
