Some people dream of a fancy indoor garden sink. I’d like one outside.
With hydrangea season just underway at my house, I cut the first of my Annabelles this week and dutifully carted them into our mud room where I plopped them in the sink to be sure they were critter-free. That’s when I thought – once again — how wonderful it would be to have an outdoor workspace devoted to flowers and plants. Just like this one.
A deep, double galvanized sink with integral drainboard might well be found at a salvage yard or a restaurant fixture auction. Stainless steel could work too. But there’s something about the way steel weathers and patinas that makes it so authentic. There’s a serious gardener who works at this sink with space below for a composter. And even though it wouldn’t be especially practical here in the Northeast, where we get such freezing winter temperatures, it’s so worthy of respect I can dream, right?
