I got the lower head planter on a visit to Rosedale Gardens (post to come later) with my garden blogging pal, Alison, who also bought one. Wonder where she put hers?
The kalmia on the right has never been covered with so many flowers and the dead-looking bamboo on the left is actually putting out more leaves. So glad I listened to Alison's advice and didn't get another!
I got this cool amber "seed pod" last time I visited Judi Hook. It glows when the sun hits it!
Meanwhile, the one she made for me, delivered, and helped install this March is looking much more integrated now that the plants have filled in a bit.
The naked gardener came out of the garage and now has a place in the garden again.
This dragon by Blackwaters metal never made it onto my car as a hood ornament but I like it here preparing to eat the severed head of a cherub!
The everlasting alliums that I first saw in Linda and Tom Reeder's garden and purchased from Gardener's Supply last fall are finally out of their box.
This beautiful Italian bench, a Christmas gift from my pal Florence, had been sitting around in pieces and is now together and in a permanent place.
Fiddleheads from the lovely and talented Barbara Saunderson of Glass Gardens Northwest finally came out of their bubble wrap and into the garden. Looking forward to adding more. Blue next?
Glass flowers are blooming!
Is there anything quite as cute as a new hatchling?
Now it's time to do more tidying and clean up of beds and brickwork. There's always something to do in the garden isn't there?
