I think this is WWTT #10, somewhere along the line I kind of lost track. For me this garden is the very definition of someone cutting loose and going with their vision (there is a vision here, I am sure of it), as crazy as it may be (and yes this one is crazy, certifiably). Gardening as they want to and not caring what the neighbors think (and my god what must they think?). That’s why I chose to use it as my New Years Eve post…after all what is a better goal for the New Year than to be true to yourself? Even if it leaves others wondering "what were they thinking?" I hope you enjoy.
I took these pictures a few weeks ago, when the autumn leaves were still falling. The garden with the fiery tree isn’t the one we are visiting; it’s the one just beyond. We’ll start with the parking strip.
And it’s recycled grave sticks (or whatever they are). I have to believe it has something to do with keeping the evil spirits away.
And back to the front of the house.
This is the owl circle.
And here is the frog and duck circle.
If my memory serves the yellow accents were starting to fade and recently received a coat of paint. That must have taken awhile.
So… Happy New Year, go forth and garden with wild abandon in 2011! (just don't move next door to me okay?)
