Garden Delights

Collage Garden2

Clockwise from the upper left hand corner –

A curious cement mouse sits atop the weathered Adirondack chair that is nestled amongst the ferns. 

The Potting Shed is centrally located and stocked with pots & tools for planting.

This terra cotta Rooster pokes its head out from the flowering Catmint.

Tomatoes ripen on the vine in one of the many cedar barrels in the backyard.

Bittersweet winds it way up the post to find this antique birdhouse.

A metal wagon wheel rests in front of the lichen covered rocks surrounding the secret garden.

Dipper gourds are drilled and transformed into birdhouses.

A recycled white picket fence holds back the quince in Sasha’s garden.

The stone birdbath gives the birds a place to bathe & cool off on hot days.

Hollyhocks, in shades of white, cream & light pink make a wonderful backdrop in Sable’s herb garden.

Black-eyed Susans add a splash of color throughout the raised beds.

Delights is the perfect description of that collage of your garden. I just love it. I can just picture how pretty the bittersweet will look come the fall too!

hugs, Linda
