Just The Silly Things

Seen on the recent garden tour of five beautiful gardens in our town ---







The gardens were so impressive, and I have tons of photos of plants and designs and gorgeous settings.

But today I just wanted to post a few of the fun things I saw.  What good is a garden unless you can put silly things in it?

  1. Twig Chick is my favorite although the upside down pots looks rather cool, too.

  2. I like whimsy, so much personality. I really like the stick people, they are so creative.

  3. Cute. Reminds me of dad with his toy dinos and crocodiles by the pond in the summer and polar bears in the winter. For the grandkids. Of course. ;)

  7. Laurrie, I'm all for a bit of whimsy in the garden and I do love those twig people but I don't 'get' the terra cotta planters. Guess I'm getting old!!

  8. These are all so much fun! I'm not that creative, so I love garden tours--they give me ideas to copy that I'd certainly never come up with on my own.

  9. Hi Laurrie,
    The wit and humor in these garden objects had me laughing out loud. Sometimes we can take gardening to seriously. These gardeners know how to have a bit of fun.

  10. Donna, Ha! I liked the field of broken pots the best... different strokes : )

    Rose, I am amazed at what others come up with. I'm just not that creative.

    Jennifer, absolutely. You have to have fun in the garden.
