Garden Tour Artwork

IT'S BEEN AWHILE SINCE I've posted but I'm back. Last Saturday my garden buddies and I went on a garden tour. Although I didn't make note of any real stand-out plants, there were many pretty vignettes with garden art and nice pots. Because I've got 47 (!) photos, I'll keep my comments brief. 

Enjoy! 
















































So what's your favorite?

Gorgeous! I'm such a sucker for rust and mosaics. Love the greenhouse and that's also a beautiful Hakone grass.

Teresa said...

Loved the tour. Thanks for sharing. Alot of great ideas here.

Oh my goodness. So much to see, all of it beautiful and colorful and it all speaks volumes.

Thank you for sharing. I love the S mosaic, the lady statue with her hands clasped at her head, the hope heart, garden paths. The vignettes are all wonderful really.

Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

Do I HAVE to pick a favorite? Well, I would like to have a garden shed like that with all the windows.....

Your eye (and camera) gravitated to the same things I would have photographed! I'm a huge admirer of yard art!

(You HAVE been missed, by the way.)

They're all very nice, but my favorite is the little girl and boy sitting on a bench. And I always like to see ways hens and chicks are grown.

Grace, thanks for sharing these awesome photos of gardens beyond belief. Since mine is still languishing in the cool, shady days of the Portland area, there isn't much blooming yet. I'm trying to be patient, and these goodies were balm to my soul that there is still hope!

From fun and funky to refined and sophisticated...it's always entertaining to see creativity unleashed in the garden. Favorite? The garden shed/greenhouse, hands down.
I came back from the ANLD tour with 276 photos, so sorting through those will be a major effort.

I love garden art as I get so many great ideas...I have that fairy with the book although she is a different color...and I saw that milkweed...wonderful!!!

Anna Maria said...

Great garden art! Love the colored bottles on the pole.

What a perfect way to spend a sunny Saturday Grace. You must have enjoyed the tour. Hard to pick a favourite but I like the row of watering cans.

Kate Caruso said...

Grace, these are such enjoyable photos! Even though I took the tour, I missed most of what your keen eye captured in these images! Thanks for the second look, rendered through the eyes of an artist!

Would you believe that in my 37 years of life, 18 of them spent gardening in my own dirt, I've never been on a garden tour? How fun. I love too many of your photos to list, but I think my favorite of the post has to be the hope stepping stone.

Love the greenhouse/garden shed and really everything else! So much fun stuff! What a great sunny day for a garden tour! We're back to rain today. Sigh.

For garden art I like the zany mosaic cat's head on the post. For a garden vignette I like the nice flagstone path with the hostas and foxglove in the last photo. Lots of cool photos!

I love garden tours, Grace -- I love to steal the great ideas I get from them. Can't pick a favorite here, but I may copy the birdhouses on the step ladder. P. x
