Living in the south leaves me dreaming of lush, slightly overgrown, chock full of kitch, baubles and bits gardens. Now, I live smack in the middle of the suburbs and wanting to put a clawfoot tub in my backyard and fill it with flowers is frowned upon...right now. The thing is, I still yearn for that kooky-eclectic garden.
I have been slowly collecting bottles for my future bottle tree.
I have a great tree and am searching for the perfect outdoor chandelier to hang from its boughs.
I have a pile of pennies and I'm looking for a bowling ball to attach them to.
I have proudly displayed my recycled vase and plate bird bath/feeder.
I have ideas of furniture painted bright colors for outdoor sitting.
I pick up a rock whenever I go somewhere new for my rock garden. **Bring me a rock when you come to visit!
See, I'm not really concerned about flowers, yes, they are lovely, but I really like green things, succulents, vines, andthings with leaves. (okay, I admit I LOOOOVE flowers, I just have a black thumb, greens are lovely and easy!)
So when I am stumbling around the internetz I like to stop by Digging. A lovely site dedicated to awesome gardens.
On a 'Digging' garden tour of Austin TX I saw some lovely plated on poles, like flowers... I HAD to make one/some, a hundred.
Today I finally experimented and here's what I came up with:
Okay, there is only one spoon 'leaf' in the picture, but after seeing it this way I am going to attach at least one more, maybe two.
Looks sparse like this, but I think with 2 or 4 more the cluster will be perfect!
