Today we return to the Johnson/Miles garden (the subject of yesterday's post), so I can share a few photos of my favorite feature, these agave towers...
There was a trio
And they were AMAZING.
Repurposed, reused, upcycled, planted amazingness.
This type of thing (although smaller) is what I'll be selling at my "danger garden upcycle and plant" pop-up shop at Xera Plants on May 30th. I say "this type" of thing because if I were lucky enough to come up with something just like this I would be keeping it, not selling it.
I tried so hard to get a decent image of these towers that I could use in my book (without having to get a ton of people to sign photo-waivers) but had to just give up on that and snap photos for my own (and your) inspiration).
As near as I can tell these are made up of tall metal cylinders...
Fitted with a top and bottom piece with holes, through which they've run rebar to keep them upright.
The whole thing is topped off with a metal "basket" that flares outward.
Oh and agaves! We must not forget the agaves (I could never forget the agaves).
These were the highlight of the garden for me.
And perhaps others too...
There's Ms. Growing Obsession snapping a photo (read her post on this garden here).
Just a few more photos...
I won't be attending this year's Garden Bloggers Fling in Madison Wisconsin, so I am going to have to depend on these "camera toting friends" to take lots of photos of inspiring things like this that I'll be missing!
