Faces in the Garden





Frances, of Faire Garden in Tennessee inspired me to do this post. I was surfing garden blogs (and so delighted to have a long stretch of time to do it). when I came across her blog entry, Faces in the Garden. Her statuary is beautiful, and it reminded me that I, too, have other items of interest in my gardens, in addition to the plants. And since our winter blog material is a little sparse, I thought, "what a great idea!" So, thanks for inspiring me, Frances. I hope you enjoy the faces in my garden!

What great fun these are! I love garden whimsies as a way to add some humour to our passion for planting--little surprises here and there for visitors as well as the gardener. (and the rabbits)

You have a great collection of garden art I like the kitten boots and wish I had a pair like that!

Tanner and Sierra must be great garden companions. I wonder how they handled the tomato thief.

You are lucky to part of the Austin Garden Bloggers ... I would so love to go to the Spring Fling.

Thanks everyone -- glad you're enjoying my "friends!" Many of the small gray statues came from my son for Mothers' Day over the years, so they are really special.

Kate - not only is Tanner a tomato thief, he's now taught the other dog, Sierra, to eat everything in sight in our yard!

Thanks for the nice mention in your story. your faces look friendly, not like my gargoyles. Especially the pink boots, love them.

Frances - Oh you're welcome! Thanks for the inspiration -- and I love gargoyles, btw. The pink boots spoke to me because I almost tripped over them going through the garage to take pictures of faces, and then I realized there were faces on them!!!

I love garden whimsies. Little surprises tucked here and there. I always try to pick up one or two new ones each year.
